Description:

When ESP WA switches over to the Shadow Manager, we know that MGRADDR AGENT command in ESP Init parm can make sure all active agents will communicate with the Shadow Manager. However, if any of the agents need to be recycled then it will try to communicate with the original ESP WA manager (based on the data in agentparm.txt file), not the Shadow Manager. Is there any way to change the server data in agentparm.txt file as well?

Solution:

"MGRADDR AGENT PERSISTENT(YES)" can be used to permanently save the current Manager address and receiver port number in the Agent?s agentparm.txt file so the Agent knows to which receiver to connect when required.
