CA Workload Automation ESP Edition

Issue/Introduction

Port 161 is reserved by ESP Agent in the Agent Server.

This is an issue because the client didn’t register this port as a valid port connection of the server. Now the client wants to disable the ESP service not to reserve port 161 as listening.

Environment

Release : 12.0

Component : CA ESP WORKLOAD AUTOMATION

Resolution

Management plugin needs to be enabled to make SNMP work. If Agentparm doesn't have something like below:


plugins.start_internal_6=management

Then it's already disabled.



You can comment out or remove following parms and restart the agent:


management.snmp.mibfile=C:/Program Files (x86)/CA/Workload Automation AE/SystemA
management.snmp.agent.trapsink.host=localhost
management.snmp.agent.port=161

Note: the port is specified on management.snmp.agent.port, and the other two parms are related to the management plugin too.
