HCL Workload Automation on Amazon Web Services

Scenario 1: Direct connection; your computer can connect to the master domain manager

Direct connection; procedure to install an agent on a computer that can connect to the master domain manager

This scenario describes your environment if the computers on which you are launching the agents can communicate with the internet and connect to the master domain manager.

To install the agent, complete the following steps:
  1. Verify the supported operating systems and prerequisites.
  2. Before you start the installation, ensure that your computer meets the following requirements:
    Temporary disk space
    300 MB
    Installation directory space
    480 MB
  3. If you did not already download the agent installation files, go to the Dynamic Workload Console landing page. In the Download and Install section, you can download the agent installation files for the selected operating system platform.
  4. Go to the directory where you saved the compressed agent installation files, in this example, /WAAgent.
  5. Extract the agent installation files TWS94_IBM_I_AGENT.zip to the /WAAgent directory.
  6. On the computer on which you want to install the product, sign on as the QSECOFR user.
  7. Use the PASE shell or the AIXterm command to extract the package:
    Using PASE shell:
    1. Open the PASE shell.
    2. Run the command "CALL QP2TERM".
    3. Locate the folder where you downloaded the agent installation files and run the command:
      "unzip TWS94_IBM_I_AGENT.zip"
    4. Exit from the PASE shell.
    Using AIXterm command:
    1. Start the Xserver on your desktop.
    2. On the iSeries machine, open a QSH shell and export the display.
    3. In QSH shell, go to the directory /QopenSys and run the command "aixterm -sb".
    4. A pop-up window is displayed on your desktop. By Using this pop-up window, unzip the TWS94_IBM_I_AGENT.zip file.
  8. Open a QSH shell and run the installWAAgent script. To install the agent using the default settings, run the following command from the directory where you downloaded the agent installation files:
    ./installWAAgent.sh -new [-uname user_name] -acceptlicense yes
    -uname user_name
    the name of the user for which the agent is installed.
    -acceptlicense yes|no
    Specify whether or not to accept the License Agreement. If you specify no, the update exits without performing any action.

By default, the agent is installed in the home_dir/TWA directory.

The default value assigned to the -gwid <gateway_site_label> parameter is GW1. Also, the agent is installed by using the 31114 port to dispatch workload, the 31132 port to dispatch events, and all the default values. If the 31114 port is already in use, then install the agent specifying this additional parameter: -jmport port_number and a number in the range 1-65535 as follows:
./installWAAgent.sh -new [-uname user_name] -acceptlicense yes 
-jmport port_number

After a successful installation proceed with the installation of another agent if necessary.

If the installation did not complete successfully, an error is displayed on the screen. Correct the error as described in the error Operator Response that you find in the inst_dir/logs file, and rerun the installation.
