    Question:

     

    We're running an Agent for Siebel IP7, and upgraded to Siebel IP15.
    For that, we'd like to get the download link for the ERP Agent for Siebel on Siebel IP15, and the
    documentation related to it as it needs to be configured as 5.x Agent.

     

    Answer:

     

    At first glance, with Siebel IP15 you can only use the ERP Agent 12.51
    on SunOS and RedHat. Here are the details for download, support matrix
    and documentation you requested.

    You'll find the binaries here :

     

    Go to : https://support.ca.com/us/download-center.html?r=1

     

    and search for : "CA Single Sign-On Agent for Siebel MULTI-PLATFORM"

     

    This one has the following binaries :

     

    CA SINGLE SIGN-ON AGENT R12.51 FOR SIEBEL FOR SOLARIS-32- ESD ONLY
    GEN05101422E.zip

     

    CA SINGLE SIGN-ON AGENT R12.51 FOR SIEBEL FOR LINUX-32- ESD ONLY
    GEN05101503E.zip

     

    You'll find the related documentation here :

     

    CA SSO Agent for Siebel

     

    https://docops.ca.com/bookshelves/ca-sso-agent-for-siebel

     

    which gives you the link to "CA SSO Agent for Siebel Guide" and "CA
    SSO Agent for Siebel Release Notes".

     

    The version 12.51 can also work in 5x mode, as stated by the Release
    notes :

     

    Agent for Siebel Release Notes r12.51

    Chapter 3: New Features

    Agent Communication Model
    This product now communicates with the Policy Server using the trusted host
    communication model.

     

    CA_SSO_Agent_for_Siebel_Release_ENU.pdf

     

    this means that now the ERP Agent for Siebel can work also with the
    trusted host model (5x). On previous version, it can't.

     

    Configuring in 4x version is supported with IP15.

     

    You should not use these libraries on the Policy Server :

     

    libnpssessionlinker.so - Package: NPSSessionLinker V5.60.0423.557
    libnpssessionlinker.so - Component: NPSSessionLinker Configuration Active Response V5.60.0423.557 (Dec 15 2011 12:17:11)

     

    but the ones that are shipped with the Session Linker 12.52
