fact
AMAdminUNIX_SetPrimaryMS Knowledge Script

symptom
The AMADMINUNIX_SetPrimaryMS Knowledge Script does not save changes to UNIX agent after a cold start.

symptom
The primary management server changes after Unix agent cold start.

cause
AMADMINUNIX_SetPrimaryMS Knowledge Script modifies the MSDesignation table in the repository, and the next communication transfer pushes the change to the UNIX agent. The change is temporary. You are modifying UnixAgent/db/nqmtasks.xml on the UNIX machine, but not UnixAgent/conf/nqmcfg.xml. When you perform a cold start of the agent, you eliminate the changes made by AMAdminUNIX_SetPrimaryMS. 

fix
Make the changes after each cold start of the agent.
