It's possible to have a separate file using the standard Hiveconf 

* Comment out explicit_agentselection in vsmserver.hconf

* Create a new file, say x-agentselection.hconf, with:

explicit_agentselection=username1:agentname1 username2:agentname2

Wrt LDAP support, we'd like to avoid having a dependency for a particular 
directory server in the product itself. One solution could be to create a 
cron job that generates the file from LDAP.
