Registering the Agent for an SAP ASE Server

Register the remote command and control agent.

Note: For SAP ASE versions 15.7 and earlier, the agent is the Unified Agent. For versions 15.7 ESD #1 and later, the agent is the SCC agent. Follow the steps provided here to register either type of agent.

The agent is installed and set up as a component of the installation. See the SAP ASE installation guide for your platform.

To perform certain administrative tasks, such as starting the server or viewing the error log, you must register and authenticate the agent to use SCC.

For full administrative control, register an agent for each server you have configured. The agent is configured on the same host as the server that it manages. When you register the agent, you are updating SCC with information about the machine and port number on which the agent is configured.

  1. In the Perspective Resources view, select a resource, click the drop-down arrow that appears next to the name, and select Administration Console.
  2. Click ASE Servers.
    You see a list of monitored servers.
  3. Select the server you want to manage and click the drop-down arrow that appears next to the name.
  4. Click Register Agent.
    You see the Server Properties screen.
  5. Enter the port number for the agent and click Register.
    Note: After the agent is registered, you can authenticate the agent, or clear the registration.
  6. (Optional) Enter the login name and password for the agent, and click Authenticate.
    The default login name for the agent is uafadmin. The default password depends on the version of SAP ASE:

    15.7 and earlier that use Unified Agent 2.0 – no password

    15.7 ESD #1 – Sybase4me

    15.7 ESD #2 and later – no default; password is set during installation
