Automatic start of the Agent GUI

Applies to EMv7

With version 7 of the Enterprise Manager, the start of the EM Agent GUI is monitored and started automatically after a fixed time. The following behavior of the EM Agent GUI is present:

  • When the machine is restarted or a user logs on to the machine, the EM Agent service (below the logged-in user) will automatically start next to the EM Agent service
  • If the EM Agent service is stopped, the EM Agent GUI will continue to run until the EM Agent service is restarted, and then connect to the rebooted EM Agent service
  • If both the EM Agent service and the EM Agent GUI are stopped and then only the EM Agent service is restarted, the EM Agent GUI will not be automatically restarted. The first time you run the EM Agent service, it will check to see if the GUI has started after a fixed time of 2 minutes. If it is not running then the EM Agent GUI (under the logged in user) will be started. Every fifteen minutes an internal check takes place, if the EM Agent GUI is started

The behavior of the EM Agent GUI in version 7 is different than in version 6!
