Issue/Introduction

Issue:

After a successful installation of WA Agent 11.3 SP4 using the "unix_installer.properties" file, the Agent could not be started due to the "security.cryptkey" parameter set to blank in "agentparm.txt" file :

 

security.filename=/opt/CA/WorkloadAutomationAE/SystemAgent/WA_AGENT/security.txt

security.level=off

 

security.cryptkey=   < ======

 

Environment:

WA Agent 11.3 SP4 on Linux

 

Resolution:

The encountered problem was related to the "STRONG_ENCRYPTION_FILE" option not set in "unix_installer.properties" file:

#STRONG_ENCRYPTION_CIPHER=DES

#STRONG_ENCRYPTION_CIPHER=DESEDE

STRONG_ENCRYPTION_CIPHER=AES

#STRONG_ENCRYPTION_CIPHER=BLOWFISH

#STRONG_ENCRYPTION_KEYGEN=0xC468284E7BF6FB41

 

#STRONG_ENCRYPTION_FILE=$USER_INSTALL_DIR$$/$cryptkey.txt   < =====

 

The recommended solution is to set it to set it to "cryptkey.txt" in "unix_installer.properties" file :

#STRONG_ENCRYPTION_CIPHER=DES

#STRONG_ENCRYPTION_CIPHER=DESEDE

STRONG_ENCRYPTION_CIPHER=AES

#STRONG_ENCRYPTION_CIPHER=BLOWFISH

#STRONG_ENCRYPTION_KEYGEN=0xC468284E7BF6FB41

 

STRONG_ENCRYPTION_FILE=cryptkey.txt   < =====

 

Problem resolved by applying the solution.

The silent installation completed successfully.
