Child relay Installation

You can connect an agent relay to a Deployment Automation server through another agent relay.

Limitations:

  • Only one level of connection is supported. The connection will look like this:

    DA server <-> Agent relay 1 (parent) <-> Agent relay 2 (child) <-> Agent

  • Unidirectional communication is supported only for parent agent relays.
  • A maximum of 500 agents can connect to child relays. Exceeding this number may cause connectivity issues.

To connect using a child agent relay:

  1. Perform a normal installation of an agent relay. For details, see Agent relay installation.
  2. After the installation has finished, open this file:

    <relay_installation>\conf\agentrelay.properties

  3. Specify the values for the following properties:

    agentrelay.http_proxy.parent_proxy_host The IP or host name of the parent agent relay.
    agentrelay.http_proxy.parent_proxy_port The http proxy port of the parent agent relay. Default: 20080.
    agentrelay.jms_proxy.server_host The IP or host name of the parent agent relay.
    agentrelay.jms_proxy.server_port The port that the parent agent relay uses for JMS communication. Default: 7916.
  4. Save the changes.
