Disabling automatic agent start on AIX and Linux systems
On an AIX or Linux system, an agent can automatically start after operating system restart. If you do not want the agent to start automatically after system restart, you can disable automatic agent start.
About this task
If you install an agent as root user on the AIX or Linux system, the agent can automatically start after system restart. Or, if you install an agent as non-root user but run the UpdateAutoRun.sh script as root after installation, the agent can automatically start after system restart.
To disable automatic agent start, complete the following steps:
- Open the
install_dir/registry/AutoStartfile in a text editor of your choice.
- Change the content to 0 and save your changes. The previous content is a positive number, such as
4, which specifies the agent script to run after system restart.
After system restart, no agent script will automatically run to start the agent.
