To install the BMC Synthetic Transaction Execution Adapter (TEA) Agent for monitoring of synthetic transactions, you can use a silent (unattended) installation, as described in this topic, or an installation wizard.
The following topics describe how to set up and run a silent installation:
(Version 2.6.10) You can run the installation utility more than once to install more than one TEA Agent on a single computer. Each agent must have a unique name and a separate installation directory.
The Maintenance Tool enables you to encrypted a password. You must use encrypted passwords when you define properties for the silent installation so that the passwords are not exposed in the TEAAgent-silent-option.txt file.
You can run the Maintenance Tool in a GUI or from the command line.
Copy and paste the value from the Encrypted Password field to the TEAAgent-silent-option.txt file for your silent installation.
For example, if the encrypted password output is DES\:d70cbe3669602717ce66af37cce7ecf0, modify the
apm_console_password property as follows:
-confirm_passwordoptions. If the password contains special characters, enclose the value in quotation marks (for example,
TEAAgentMaintenanceTool.cmd -silent -encrypt -encrypt -password="<password>" -confirm_password="<password>"
(Version 2.6.10) If you want to install more than one TEA Agent on the same computer, you must run the installation more than once. Each run must have a unique
tea_service_name and a separate
installLocationparameter. The default path is C:\Program Files (x86)\BMC Software\BMCTEAAgent.
If you are installing a single TEA Agent, enter a name for the
If you use an installation deployment tool to deploy the synthetic TEA Agents over several computers, each TEA Agent name must be unique in the synthetic transaction monitoring system. Ignore the
tea_service_name parameter and set the
auto_generated_tea_service_name parameter to
true to automatically generate a unique name for each agent.
Enter or edit the values for the following properties. For a description of the properties, see Performing the TEA Agent installation.
Ensure that all passwords are encrypted, as described above.
From the directory where the installer file is stored, open a command prompt and run the silent installation using the following command:
The <filePath> is the full location of the options file.
After you install the BMC Transaction Execution Adapter Agent, the service automatically starts and the Agent is automatically registered by the BMC Application Management Console. The Agent is ready to receive configuration information.
