I got a question about the requirements for Agent Controller installation:
"The Certified Systems doc talks about the supported operating systems for Agents, but it doesn't say if specific packages or patches are required. Where can I find out if my OSes can support an agent?"
We figured that a tool to check a system for Agent compatibility would be easier to use than a list of required packages and patches. The OCDoctor, among other functions, can check a system to see if it meets the prereqs for an Agent, Proxy, or Enterprise Controller installation. To check a system, you can download the OCDoctor from http://java.net/projects/oc-doctor/downloads, unpack it on the target system, and run it with the --agent-prereq option. This will tell you what (if anything) needs to be done so that the system can support an Agent.
