The new WA Agent R12 now comes with all the plugins or business agent pre-installed with the base agent.  Users can enable the plugin using simple PluginInstaller command.


./PluginInstaller addons/appservices.cfg .

After the plugin has been enabled the agent alias for plugin in Topology (DE and ESP) may show as inactive.


Product: WA Agent R12.x

OS: Any



The plugin will show ad inactive and/or some plugin retaliated jobs may fail after enabling because the libraries in agent have to be reloaded.  

Following error will be seen in the agent receiver.log
