The UNIX agent has been updated so that if you restart the UNIX agent, UNIX Knowledge Scripts that require authentication information (such as an Oracle password) continue to run properly.
If the port number(s) that your listener process(es) are listening on change after AppManager for Oracle UNIX/Linux is installed, you must reinstall the module on the UNIX host so that the application can acknowledge these changes.
