Description Jeff Weiss 2008-08-04 13:05:00 EDT
When starting the agent for the first time in advanced mode (./rhq-agent.sh --clean --setup --advanced) you get some prompts where clearly the agent is expecting an enumerated set of values, (not free-form).  For example:

Agent Transport Protocol [socket] : 
RHQ Server Transport Protocol [servlet] : 
Client Authentication Mode [none] :

What would be nice is if the user didn't have to go digging in the documentation to find out what the other acceptable values are, besides "servlet" or "none".  I assume the agent code validates this input, so it ought to be able to print the choices right in the prompt as well?
