The SimpleAgent class uses the local credential store to obtain user account
and password information, for automated logon to the target host system.
SimpleAgent can be used with {@link CreateUser}, to
demonstrate using the {@link CredentialStore} client API.
SimpleAgent accesses the local credential store to obtain a single user
account to login to the specified server (--hostName is the only common-line
argument). If more than one user account exists in the credential store,
an error message displays.
To create user accounts and store them in the local credential store, use
the {@link CredentialStoreAdmin} client utility.

hostName           [required] : The fully-qualified domain name of the server

Command Line:
run.bat com.vmware.simpleagent.SimpleAgent --hostName [myServerName]
