Look in the Key column for the Agent name that is to be modified (a row may need to be added if the Agent does not appear there), and change the value to UC_HOSTCHAR_AGENTNAME
Save and exit the Variable

4.Outside of the UI, navigate to the Agent's /bin directory. Once there, open the Agent's .ini file for editing, and change the logon= line to logon=0. This line can be found under the [GLOBAL] header. Once this has been saved, the Agent should now start jobs under the Agent's OS user.
