Configure the server-initiated agent status check

To configure the server-initiated agent status options:

  1. Navigate to the da\WEB-INF\classes directory in your web application and open the da_config.xml file. This file contains your current agent status check settings.
  2. Copy the keepAliveRollCallConfig settings from the da_config.xml file:

    <keepAliveRollCallConfig>

    ...

    </keepAliveRollCallConfig>

  3. Navigate to the DA user profile directory where the DA server configuration is stored.

    For example, ..\Users\username\.microfocus\da\conf\server.

  4. Open the da_config.xml file in the DA user profile and paste the copied keepAliveRollCallConfig settings there.

    Note: Every DA server upgrade restores the da_config.xml settings in the web application to default. That's why you need to add and configure these settings in the DA user profile directory to make them permanent.

  5. Edit the keepAliveRollCallConfig settings in the da_config.xml file as needed. The following table provides descriptions of the settings:

    Setting Description

    enabled

    Turns on or off the scheduled run of keepalive roll calls.
    The default value is false.

    pollingPeriodInMinutes

    Specifies the keepalive roll call polling period in minutes. This is the time wait before performing the next keepalive roll call verification.
    The default value is 1.

    durationInSeconds
