Issue:

 When trying to create a AC for PUPM endpoint for *NIX server fails.

Environment: 

 Privilege Identity Manager Server 12.8

 Privilege Identity Manager Endpoint 12.8 on any *NIX server

Resolution:

Please perform following steps on the problem endpoint to resolve the issue.
1. Shutdown PIM endpoint Services

#secons -sk


2. Delete PupmAgent.dat file from /opt/CA/AccessControlShared/data/AgentManager (this is the default installation location, do change the location to meet your installation location) , if the file exists


3. Edit the accommon.in located in the following location as root user, after editing the 'accommon.ini' would like as below

#more /etc/accommon.ini

[AgentManager]

Plugins = PupmAgent

[communication]

Distribution_Server = ssl://<Host name or IP of the Distribution Server>:7243

[PupmAgent]

OperationMode = 1


4. Edit the seos.ini located in the following location as root user, after editing the 'seos.ini' would like as below

"/etc/seos.ini"

[PUPMAgent]

OperationMode = 1

In case Trace mode is required to be enabled, set the token value of OperationMode = 2

[daemons]

AgentManager = yes, /opt/CA/AccessControlShared/lbin/agent_manager.sh start


5. Run the following command

# cd /opt/CA/AccessControl/bin/ (Change the working directory to the 'bin' directory where PIM is installed)
#./sechkey -t -pwd <communication_password>


6. Restart PIM daemons on the endpoint

#seload


7. Login to ENTM GUI, and verify the endpoint type column in World View --> Hosts.

In here the list of hosts will be displayed, now verify against the problem hostname, the "type" column and this should have two icons, one for SAM endpoint as well as AC icon.

Note: Depending upon the network traffic and load on the ENTM / Database hosts, the updated display in the World View might take a while.
