Issue :

 
After a silent installation of Workload Agent we noticed the following parameter is not set in the "agentparm.txt" file :
 
security.cryptkey=cryptkey.txt    
 

 

 

Environment: 

 

 

Workload Automation AE Agent release 11.3 SP4 on Linux 

 

 

Cause:

 

The problem was related to the “STRONG_ENCRYPTION_FILE”  parameter 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      < =====

 

 

 

Resolution:

 
The recommended solution is to comment out the above parameter and to set it to “cryptkey.txt” :

STRONG_ENCRYPTION_FILE=cryptkey.txt     < ======

 

So that we can get the following result in your “agentparm.txt” file :

 

# Security

#

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

security.level=off

security.cryptkey=cryptkey.txt    < ======

 

Problem was resolved by applying the solution.
