SAF Agent

Symptoms

We cannot target a SAF (Store And Forward) agent to a migratable target on WLS 9.2.3 and WLS 9.2.4

1. Create a domain with 3 managed servers in a cluster and configure the cluster for service migration.
2. Cross check the migratable targets on the admin console.
3. Create a Persistence Store for the SAF agent and target it to a migratable target.
4. Create a SAF agent.

When you are creating the SAF agent you will be taken to a page where you can select the target server. You will notice that the page is blank, reason being the target page should give you the server name where the SAF persistence store is targeted. But since you have targeted it to a migratable target, it does not appear.

5. Now target the SAF persistence store to one of the managed servers.
6. Now create a SAF agent.

This time you will see a managed server name appears on the page where you can choose targets for the agent.

To summarize :
SAF agent cannot be targeted to a migratable target in WLS versions lower than 10.3.0.
