Step-by-step guide-

Select the CMD Agent and click "Stop" to stop the agent while configuring it.

Repeat the steps above for each host specified

Now for the Event & Shell Jobs fan

Enter hostname (or IP address) and port number to use.

Specify which TSM administrator account you want the agent to use.

Then click "click here to set up the password". This is the password you have set on the TSM server for the administrative account.
