When going through the Remote Agent Installer, after changing the default agent settings, agents will receive the settings, but the next time the Remote Agent Installer is used all the settings in the Remote Agent Installer are reset to what they were before.

Where are the Remote Agent Installer settings kept to permanently change them?
