The Enterprise Management Agent is provided with the Enterprise Offering that enables the platform to be managed remotely using a Tivoli Device Manager.
The Enterprise Management Agent uses the Sample Account to connect to the server. Configuration parameters allow for specification of the Device User Name and Device User Password to be used to connect to the server. An optional server password may also be specified. The Device User Name and Device User Password will be authenticated using the security mechanisms configured in the WebSphere Application Server.
WCTME EO does not support multiple accounts. The WEDM server provides functionality to allow a user to change the default account id using a Custom Command. If it is changed using this command, it will cause the Enterprise Management Agent to malfunction.
The address of the server providing the device management capabilities is configurable on the client. Connection to the Tivoli Device Manager is through the http protocol only using Basic Authentication. Agents will connect to the server using the servlet /dmserver/SyncMLDMServletAuthRequired
To enable the Enterprise Management Agent on client systems to connect to the Tivoli Device Manager, the agent requires configuration. Configuration can be accomplished using the Manage > Preferences > Enterprise Management Agent
buttons are provided on the Preferences dialog, changes to the Agent configuration cannot be imported or exported using these buttons.
Once configured, agent configuration information, including the Device ID, can be viewed using Help > About WCTME Enterprise Offering > Configuration Details
Once the Enterprise Management Agent is configured, the Application > Install
and Manage > Application Management
dialogs are disabled.
