ArcMC Reinstall - "Update the authentication credentials on the localhost, and then install the ArcMC Agent"
We had to reinstall ArcMC. I now see a message, in ArcMC, for the "Host" called "Localhost" (it's ArcMC) that says "Update the authentication credentials on the localhost, and then install the ArcMC Agent". What account _name_ are they referring-to and is this performed via "change credentials" in ArcMC? I tried to "change credentials" using the account I thought the message was referring-to but no luck.
You would need to install local agent on ArcMC server,
We ran into similar issue not long ago, I struggled with it due to permissions, "/tmp noexec" and selinux on the server, but was able to fix it after a bit of research.
Binary for agent is included in ArcMC software package search for it (not sure of exact location now), find ArcSight-ArcMCAgent-x.x.x.x.x.bin file in your current install and then install it at same level as /"your_arcsight_home"/userdata directory level.
Try the admin account.
I assume 2.2. Please consider to install 2.2P1

Thanks for those who tried to help us on this issue. Luckily, ArcMC is running on a VM and we were able to snap-back the snapshot to a known good instance of our ArcMC. We're now up-and-running again.
I had the same issue, but when I try to install the Agent I found this issue:
[root@arcmc ArcMC]# ./ArcSight-ArcMCAgent-126.96.36.1990.0.bin
