Issue/Introduction

Issue:

When running a silent installation of WA Agent 11.3 SP4 on Linux, we get an error on encryption key.

We have the following options provided in the "unix_installer.properties.bin" file used for the silent install :

#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

Please advise which is the recommended option. 

 

Environment:

WA Agent 11.3 SP4 on Linux

 

Resolution:

When installing the Agent from the WA Agent Only DVD, this Agent can be used for many Schedulers like :

WA AE (AutoSys), WA DE (dSeries), CA-7

 

When the Scheduler is WA AE (AutoSys), the only supported encryption method is "AES".

So in the "unix_installer.properties.bin" used for silent install we will need to set:

STRONG_ENCRYPTION_CIPHER=AES

 

Problem resolved by applying the solution. The silent installation completed successfully.
