Issue/Introduction

While trying to run the agent install, on windows, for a second time (to install a new instance of the agent) it fails. 

Can a second instance be installed?

Environment

CA Release Automation Agent 6.6
Windows

Resolution

This is not officially supported. However, it has been done by following these steps:

Agent Service Install:

  1. Stop the NolioAgent service
  2. Remove the NolioAgent service by running the batch file: remove_deployer_service.cmd
  3. Modify the <Nolio_Install_Location>\NolioAgent\conf\wrapper.conf on first agent and change the following parameters:
# Name of the service
wrapper.ntservice.name=nolioagent2
# Display name of the service
wrapper.ntservice.displayname=Nolio Agent
# Description of the service
wrapper.ntservice.description=Nolio Agent Service

Change them to the following values:
# Name of the service
wrapper.ntservice.name=nolioagent1
# Display name of the service
wrapper.ntservice.displayname=Nolio Agent1
# Description of the service
wrapper.ntservice.description=Nolio Agent Service1
  1. Save the file after making these changes.
  2. Run install_deployer_service.cmd to get the service of first agent installed with the new service name.
  3. Now install the second agent but in a different path than the first agent.(install the agent using the install wizard)
  4. Make sure to change the following during the installation of second agent:
  • agent listening port (the default is 6600, need to change)
  • provide a new, unique node id
  • jmx port
  1. Once this installation is successful, you can start both the agents from services.msc.
