[AG-TECH] Running VenueServer 24/7

What you want is to request a VenueServer service certificate that you 
can use to run your venue server.  The service certificate has no 
passphrase, so it is used directly by the venue server (instead of 
having to generate a short-lived proxy certificate).

When you request the service cert, you can use the certificate manager 
to write a service profile.  You can then, after retrieving the service 
cert, run your Venue Server like so:

VenueServer.py --profile <profileName>
