    What is the local Control-M Agent for on the Control-M Server?

      Hi,

       

      With Version 8 a "Local Agent" is automatically installed along with the Control-M Server install. I have not used this for scheduling any work and have instead installed a standalone Agent on the box (cannot remember exactly why I did this, I did the install 12 months ago on a cluster and then moved it to a VM, maybe the Local Agent caused issues).

      Anyway, you cannot delete this Local Agent (it is prohibited when you try to) and I just have it in disabled status. I just wondered what the logic was behind having this Local Agent on the Server (it is sometimes called the "embedded agent"). Will I be causing issues in the future by having it in the disabled state?

      Regards,

      Mark.
