SAP Diagnostic Agent – install procedure

Diagnostics Agent (DA) SAP Solution Manager Diagnostics Agent is the remote component of End-to-End Root Cause Analysis. It allows having a connection between SAP Solution Manager and the Managed System(s), and then to collect information from the Managed Systems for reporting purposes.

You should remember that per SAP Solution Manager 7.2 SP14, all connected Diagnostics Agents must run on SAP JVM 8.1. Agents running older JVM versions will not be able to connect to the Solution Manager anymore. It is thus necessary to upgrade them beforehand. You have two possibilities:

  • Upgrade SAP JVM – procedure is described here.
  • Re-Install Diagnostics Agent – read procedure below…
