The IBM Agent Controller is described in the documentation as a tool that allows you to control a remote server so you can load a new ear file and test it remotely. I have tried several times to use it but have very inconsistent results. My server has Win 2000, WS 5.0, SQL 8.1. My client has Win XP, WSAD 5.0, SQL 7.2 (8.1 wouldn't install on XP). When I try to connect to the server to setup the server configuration, sometimes it responds and sometimes it does not. I once was able to connect and load a new ear file, but the server then would not start and I had to reinstall. Does anyone have positive experience using Agent Controller with a remote server? Do you have any suggestions how to get consistent connections? Thanks, Bill D
Hi, I have used IBM Agent Controller. I can debuged the app in WSAD. But the only problem is I just can test authentication using local OS, can not use LDAP authentication in WSAD. Anyone has such experience to debug LDAP authentication in WSAD using remote server? In WSAD, security options just have Local OS Authentication. Please advice. When you connect to the remote server, you need to use different deployment directory, otherwise the WAS server setting will be replaced by your WSAD setting. In this case you just can use WSAD to start the WAS. and the WAS would not start,you had to reinstall WAS. Thanks, Adam
