Apply a policy on Deep Security Agent created on Amazon Web Service (AWS) instance by running a script.
When you create an instance from an existing Amazon Machine Image (AMI) instance deployed with deactivated Deep Security Agent, you can add the Reset and Activation command on the Advanced Details section.
To do so, add the following command:
/opt/ds_agent/dsa_control -a dsm://<website>:443/ "policyid:69"
Below are some notes to consider:
- The entry "#!/bin/bash" is a must have.
- We recommend to use "sleep 60" because Deep Security needs time to start the agent-related service when you boot on the new instance from the instance template (AMI), which is installed with Deep Security Agent core installer already.
