How to add Authentication Agent to Authentication Manager 7
ResolutionThe following is taken from the Online Help Section "Add Authentication Agents" in Authentication Manager 7.1 and found with Search "Add agent host"
Before an authentication agent can communicate with RSA Authentication Manager, you must add the agent to the internal database. To add an agent for a RADIUS server or client, you must use the RADIUS server or client pages in the RADIUS menu. For more information, see Add RADIUS Servers and Server Agents and Add RADIUS Client Agents.

To add an authentication agent:


   1. Click Access > Authentication Agents > Add New.
   2. From the Security Domain drop-down menu, select the security domain to which you want to add the new agent.
   3. Use the Hostname buttons to specify whether you want to enter a new name for the agent or use an existing server name.


      If you choose to enter a new name, the name must be unique.


      If you choose to use an existing server node, the IP Address and Alternate IP Address fields are automatically populated with information for the host and are read-only.
   4. In the IP Address field, enter the IP address of the agent.


      If you choose to use an existing server name, this field is automatically populated and read-only.
   5. In the Alternate IP Address field, enter alternate IP addresses for the agent. The alternate IP addresses are used, for example, if the agent has more than one network interface card, or is located behind a static NAT firewall. It is possible that your agent does not have alternate IP addresses.


      If you choose to use an existing server name, this field is automatically populated and read-only.
   6. From the Agent Type drop-down menu, select the type of agent you want to add. The default choice is Standard Agent. Select Web Agent if you are adding a web agent on a web server.
   7. Use the Agent may be accessed by buttons to specify whether the new agent is restricted or unrestricted. Only users who are members of user groups that have been explicitly granted access to a restricted agent can use it to authenticate. Any user can use an unrestricted agent to authenticate. If you want to add a restricted agent, click Only members of user groups granted access to this agent.
   8. Use the Authentication Manager Contact List buttons to specify whether you want to assign a manual or automatic contact list to the new agent.
   9. If your deployment uses trusted realms, select the Enable Trusted Realm Authentication checkbox, and then select whether you want to allow all trusted users to authenticate through the new agent or only those trusted users who belong to a trusted user group that has been granted explicit permission to use the agent.
  10. Click Save.
