I'm using the below script to start the dbagent automatically but it doesn't start the agent. interactively running it produces this error: 

# ./dbagent start

./dbagent: line 21: -Dappdynamics.agent.logging.dir=

#AGENT_OPTIONS=: command not found

 

what should these AGENT_OPTIONS be set to? 

 

#AGENT_OPTIONS="$AGENT_OPTIONS -Dappdynamics.agent.logging.dir=/opt/appd/dbagent/logs"

when I try to set them the script still fails with the same error.

 

my script

#!/bin/bash
#
# Init file for AppDynamics Database Agent
#
# chkconfig: 2345 60 25
# description: database agent for AppDynamics

#CHANGE ME: Set to the Java install directory
JAVA="export JAVA_HOME=$(readlink -f /usr/bin/java | sed "s:bin/java::")""

#CHANGE ME: Set to the agent's install directory

AGENT="$AGENT_HOME/db-agent.jar"

#CHANGE ME: Set to a name that is unique to the Controller - required when a machine agent is
#also running on the same hardware

Hi John,

 

Please comment and add the AGENT_OPTIONS sections like below.

 # commenting below

AGENT_OPTIONS = ""

 

# Adding the unique host id of the dbagent installed machine

AGENT_OPTIONS="appdynamics.agent.uniqueHostId='DBAgent-Server-Name'"

 

You can also add the properties as listed document based on the need.

https://docs.appdynamics.com/display/PRO43/Database+Agent+Configuration+Properties

 

Save and Now check the behavior.

 

Regards,

Anka
