We have the option to customize the Agentname in "CA System Agent", this article will let you know what can be the max length of the agentname.


Release : ALL Supported version of Agents 11.3 +, 11.4+ and 11.5


The max length of agent name can be only 16 but its good practice to be 15 or less.

While installing the Agent if you mention 16 and above character you will get below error message.

Invalid Agent Parameter

Warning!! Agent Name cannot have more than 16 characters.
The installation may fail to install or the Agent may not be able to be
started after installation.
