configuring smt-agent


I’ve installed an SMT-Server for testing and I want configured a Server (client) that using this SMT-Server. All is working.
But the status of the Client was shown as “unkown” on the SMT-Server.
I installed the package smt-client on the Client and ran the command smt-agent. Now the Status on the SMT-Server is shown.

But now my question.

It there anywhere a good documentation for configuring of the smt-client (smt-agent)
I found the file /etc/sysconfig/smt-client but no manual or readme (rpm -ql smt-client does not ).
There are the parameters to ALLOWED_AGENTS and ALLOWED_CREATEJOB_JOBS
but no real description for the values.

Please can you enlighten me?

Thanks for help


PS: The documentation (smt_sle_11_guide.pdf) did not help…
