You can use the /AgentSetup/defaultAccountShell configuration variable to specify which shell the PATROL Agent uses for the process spawned by the PATROL Agent default account.

Format and type of data

Text string (shell name)

Default value

None

Minimum and maximum

None

Dependencies

None

Recommendation

Value must contain a complete path, such as "/bin/sh" or the PATROL Agent will not work properly.

This variable is not available in the config.default file. You must create this variable manually by using wpconfig (Windows), xpconfig (UNIX), PATROL Configuration Manager, or a PSL pconfig script such as the following:

%PSL pconfig("REPLACE", "/AgentSetup/defaultAccountShell", "new shell");

If the variable is set to NULL, the agent defaults to the shell given in the password file of the default account. If the value does not contain a complete path, the PATROL Agent will not work properly.
