Hi all,

we're encountering an issue starting WebAgent R12.51CR08 64bit on Apache 2.4.6/RHEL 7.


The WA doesn't start and we're stuck wit the error below in the Apache error_log:

[20/Dec/2017:13:27:33] [Error] SiteMinder Agent Unable to determine SiteMinder agent configuration file path. /etc/httpd/conf/WebAgent.conf

[20/Dec/2017:13:27:33] [Warning] SiteMinder Agent SiteMinder agent has encountered initialization errors and will not service requests.


Trace and WA logs are not available because the agent fails to produce them.


We already tried the solution provided in the KB link on below without success:


We defined CA variables as below, in the head of systemctl httpd script:

### Siteminder Variables



The Apache WS starts as apache user, the webagent it was correctly installed without issues and it's owned by apache user as well. You can see below permissions of the WebAgent.conf file:

-rw-rw-r-- 1 apache apache 997 14 dic 17.11 WebAgent.conf


These are environment details:
