The information below is seen in agent.ini in a GAI taken from a HP-UX agent running SCSP:

The extra text is a result of how we dump the agent.ini in the GAI:

                    /bin/su - sisips -c ". $IPSDIR/.profile; $IPSDIR/sisipsconfig.sh -export" > $INFODIR/$POLICYDIR/agent.ini
Likely the top 'EULA/copyright notice' part is from the user context switch  'su – sisips'  login of the above command, followed by the text from the configtool:
Agent Configuration Tool version
The agent.ini file contents are
The rest of the file should reflect the actual contents of the agent.ini file.
You can verify the difference in file size of the agent.ini in the GAI vs the size shown in the all_scsp_files.txt to confirm.
You should also see the same header in the other GAI files:  processdump.csv and psetinfo.txt where we also use the su – sisips –c "./sisipsconfig.sh" command.


This should not cause an issue as the header info is added as part of the data collection process and is not present on the active files present on the agent.
