  1. Copy the properties file to an outside directory if you want to preserve any customization that you made to the default values:
    TDM_install_directory\agent\agent.properties
  2. Uninstall and upgrade the appropriate software for your system as follows:
    Operating System Actions
    Linux (for non-Teradata servers)
    1. At the command line, type the following to upgrade the DMAgent and TTU packages:

      ./dminstallupgradeagent

    2. Answer the prompts as needed, and press Enter to accept the defaults where appropriate.
    3. Type rpm -qa |grep DMAgent to verify the installation.
  3. Restore the values from the properties file you copied to an outside directory if you want to preserve any customization that you made to the default values and override the values introduced by the patch:
    TDM_install_directory\Agent\agent.properties
  4. Specify the broker URL and broker port number for communicating with the JMS bus.
    The broker URL value is the machine name or IP address of the machine where ActiveMQ runs. The broker port value should also be the same as the port number that ActiveMQ uses. The defaults are broker.url=localhost and broker.port=61616.
  5. Follow the steps in Configuring ActiveMQ on Remote Agents if this is the first time installing or upgrading a standalone agent using this script.
    Once a standalone remote agent has been set up manually, the settings are preserved across upgrades.
