The relevant message is in the server CP log:

U00003359 Agent 'PROXY01' uses an incorrect Company Key


Due to missing [AUTHORIZATION] section in the proxy.ini file


Release : 12.3 or Higher



Update the [AUTHORIZATION] with "IntialPackage" value in the proxy.ini file -[AUTHORIZATION]


; initialPackage: The name and the path of the file that includes the authentication package (company-key file).

; This parameter must be specified if you use the authentication methods "Server" or "Server and Agent". Any attempt to log in fails if the company-key file cannot be found.

; When the agent starts, it reads the company-key file and stores its information in the file that is specified in the parameter KeyStore=. The first file is deleted afterward.



Remove the *.kstr file from Proxy client install directory/bin.

Start the proxy client using the command -

# java -jar proxy.jar


# java -jar proxy.jar -Iproxy.ini
