About Agent Manager installations on AIX

On newly installed AIX® systems, the base operating system can be further customized by the install_assist program provided by IBM®. By default, this program is listed in the /etc/inittab file so that it starts automatically when the system is started.

When install_assist runs automatically, it can interfere with the Agent Manager startup scripts that are installed in /etc/rc.d/rc2.d, and with other startup scripts, such as those provided by OpenSSH.

To prevent install_assist from starting automatically:
Edit the /etc/inittab file.

# rmitab install_assist
