Issue/Introduction

You want to take an existing OS Agent and direct it to connect to a new Automation Engine system

Environment

Release : 12.1

Component : AUTOMATION ENGINE

Resolution

Within the agent's .ini file:

1.) Change the system= reference to point to the new system.
system=<OLD SYSTEM>
to 
system=<NEW SYSTEM>

2.) Change the cp host/port the Agent is connecting to.
cp=<OLD IP>:2217
to
cp=<NEW IP>:2217

3.) Remove all entries listed under [CP_LIST] - these will be regenerated once the Agent connects to the new system..

Within the agent's bin folder on the OS:

1.) Delete the file ending in .kstr - this will be regenerated once the Agent connects to the new system.|
