agent.setup.agentIP

Description

This specifies the IP address that the Hyperic Server will use to contact the Hyperic Agent. If the agent is on the same host as the server, value of 127.0.0.1 is valid.

If there is a firewall between the server and agent, specify the IP address of the firewall, and configure the firewall to forward traffic intended for the agent to the agent's listen address, which can be configured with agent.listenIP.

The agent reads this value only in the event that it cannot find connection configuration in its data directory. Specifying this and other agent.setup.* properties is a way to reduce the user interaction required to configure an agent to communicate with the server.

Default

As installed, agent.properties contains a commented out statement that sets the value to default. If you use the agent.setup.* properties to supply an agent's configuration at first startup, and uncomment this property and leave the value default, the Hyperic Server will contact the agent using the IP address that SIGAR detects on the agent host.
