Question:

We are planning a migration for some Agents and we'd like to know: when the AgentID.dat file is created? It is done by the installation wizard?

Environment:
Web Agent 12.5 onwards
Answer:

The AgentID.dat file is created when completing the configuration process, but it is a process done by the Agent itself (and not the Wizard), so in case the file is missing, at the first Agent connection to Policy Server it should be recreated again.
