Management → Managing Resources → Managing Agents and Agent Pools → Managing Agents Remotely
Once an agent is installed, you can manage many of its features from the Deployment Automation user interface. Agent properties can be also changed directly on the agent machine by editing the agent's conf/agent/installed.properties file and restarting the agent.
To manage an agent:
In the user interface, you can see the following information about each agent:
|Edit||This option enables you to edit the agent's description and impersonation settings. You can also specify an internal agent name that is resolved dynamically to a regular agent name. The server updates the agent name with the internal agent name that you specified. For more information see Dynamically Registering Agents.|
|Restart||This option will stop and restart the agent. While the agent is stopped, its status will be Offline.|
|Upgrade||This option will stop the agent and apply the upgrade. While the agent is stopped, its status will be Offline. After the upgrade is applied, the agent will be restarted. Before its status is Online, it might briefly be Connected.|
|Test||This option will perform an agent settings and connection test. Test results are displayed in the Connection Test dialog.|
|Inactivate||This option will deactivate the agent. Agents that are deactivated cannot perform deployments. To reactivate the agent, check the Show Inactive Agents check box on the Agents pane, then click Activate for the agent.|
|Delete||Removes the agent.|
