In the agent.properties file, properties relating to communication between the vCenter Hyperic agent and server are inactive by default. You must activate them.

In the agent.properties file, locate the following section.

## Use the following if you'd like to have the agent setup 
## automatically from these properties. The values for these 
## properties are used to answer the setup questions 
## 
## If any of these properties are left undefined, the setup 
## process will prompt for their values 
## 
## If the value that should be used is the default when interactive 
## setup is done, use the string *default* as the value for the option

Activate the following properties by removing the hash tag at the beginning of each line.

#agent.setup.camIP=localhost
#agent.setup.camPort=7080 #agent.setup.camSSLPort=7443
#agent.setup.camSecure=yes #agent.setup.camLogin=hqadmin
#agent.setup.camPword=hqadmin #agent.setup.agentIP=*default*
#agent.setup.agentPort=*default*
#agent.setup.resetupTokens=no

The first time that you start the vCenter Hyperic agent, if agent.setup.camPword is inactive, and has a plain text value, the agent encrypts the value.
