Displays the agent bundle on which this job is based. To base this job on a different agent bundle, use this option to navigate to the bundle.
Choose the type of operation that this job will perform. You can choose the operation type only during job creation. After the job is created, this field is disabled.
Install - Installs agent on servers with no existing agent
Upgrade - Upgrades agent only on servers with an installed and available agent
Install/Upgrade - Installs or upgrades the agent based on current state
Agent Install Options
If an agent is successfully installed, the actions you select are performed.
|Update Server Properties|
Update the system with properties from the target servers on which you are installing agents.
|Update Configuration Objects Registration||Register any configuration objects that are found on the agent and defined in the Configuration Object Dictionary.|
|Push Agent ACLs||Push agent access control lists (ACLs) to the servers that this job targets. |
To push ACLs, the system converts the access control list defined for a server into a users configuration file and pushes that file to the agent. The access control list is derived from user permissions defined in the RBAC system.
Agent Upgrade Options
Push Agent ACLs
Push agent access control lists (ACLs) to the servers that this job targets.
If this option is selected, upgrade operation will not be executed if there is any other job in progress, due to which agent is already in use.
|Force Upgrade||If this option is selected, it will go ahead with agent upgrade, which will kill the job in progress, giving precedence to the upgrade operation.|
Preserve Staging Area On Failure
Specifies whether information copied to a staging area on a target server during installation should be preserved if the installation or upgrade fails. By default, this option is not selected, so that when the system has finished installing or upgrading an agent, it automatically deletes all files in the staging area.
