Question:
What is the procedure for changing an agent name?
Environment:

All Supported Linux OS
Answer:
You can change the agent name in the agenparm.txt and the machine definition.

example in the agenparm.txt file:
#
# Agent name
#
agentname=WA_AGENT   <====== Change agent name here



example of the machine definition:

insert_machine: (machine_name)
type: a
factor: 1.00
port: 7520
node_name: ORA-f9119
agent_name: WA_AGENT  <===== Change agent name here

Note: if you change the directory name of the agent (example default of WA_AGENT), this will affect the startup scripts
