Created attachment 644082 [details]

Description of problem:
Remote agent install form requires the ins. path to be non-empty (the field is required for the form validation), but the tooltip says it can be empty in order for some "common locations" for agent install to be used.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. navigate to Administration -> Topology -> Remote Agent Install
2. fill in some values and leave the Agent Install Path blank
3. press Install Agent button
Actual results:
form validation reports the required field is empty

Expected results:
Entailing from the tooltip, the "common locations" should be searched on the host for an agent install.

Installation of agent without giving agent install path installs agent under home/${user}/null/rhq-agent with no pid , thus it is possible to start the same agent from "remote agent install" which creates pid.
