CA Automic Workload Automation - Automation Engine

Issue/Introduction

The CA Automic Linux/Unix Agent needs to connect to the communication process (CP) of the CA Automic Automation Engine using TCP/IP protocol. In the configuration of the  CA Automic Linux/Unix Agent, there's a connection parameter of the CA Automation Engine

cp=<Host of the AE server>:<port number of the CP>

The host name of the AE Server must be resolvable by the local DNS and the port number has to be connectable. These two important conditions can be both verified with the following Command Line instructions from the Agent Host.


ping <Host of the AE server> 

telnet <Host of the AE server> <port number of the CP>

Note:
The telnet utility may not be available on your Operating System, you can use some other utility to check the ports such as ssh. Please check with your System Administrator for other options.


If one of the commands fails, it means that there's an issue with the DNS resolvability and TCP connectability of the host or the port number, respectively.
