Changing the PATROL Agent's security level

The PATROL Agent and the TrueSight Integration Service must run on the same security level to successfully communicate in TLS mode. The following steps guide you to change the PATROL Agent's security level.

Important Information

  • TrueSight Integration Service communicates with the PATROL Agent at security level 2 and above.
  • If you have already configured the PATROL Agent in TLS mode, ensure that you unset the TLS mode before changing its security level. 
  • Ensure that you have the administrative level access to run this command.
  1. Stop the PATROL Agent.

  2. Navigate to the <ROOT_INSTALL_DIR>\common\security\config_v3.0 directory location and run the following command: 

    p7_change_security_level_x86-64.cmd -c AGENT_CON -l 4 -n BOTH -d Patrol3 -v _v3.0


    p7_change_security_level_x86-64.cmd is a command line utility that allows the user to change security level and configuration for PATROL Console/Agent, Console Server, PATROL Central Web Edition. The following section describes the parameters of the command:

    • -c: This option is used to specify the component. Valid values are: AGENT_CON, CSERVER, PCWEB, PCWIN, DS_SERVER, DS_CLIENT, DS_CLI
    • -l: Specifies the security level. Valid values are: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4 Note: PATROL Agent can communicate with the Integration Service only on security level 2 and above.
    • -n: Specifies the network protocol that is used Valid values are: TCP , UDP, BOTH. Security Levels 0, 1 and 2 require both TCP AND UDP protocols. Security Levels 3 and 4 allow one protocol or both.
    • -d: Specifies the name of the Patrol3 or Patrol Central Web sub directory. No path is needed. Valid values are: Patrol3 is applicable to Agent/Console only. Webcentral is applicable only to the Patrol Central Web sub directory.
    • -v: Specifies the version of the Security installation. Valid value: _v3.0 Use this value only when the security installation version is ESS 3.0.

  3. Restart the PATROL Agent.
