Issue/Introduction






 

We want to upgrade WA Agent on Linux to the latest release.

We found several patches available under the following link:

https://support.ca.com/us/product-content/recommended-reading/technical-document-index/ca-workload-automation-agent-solutions-and-patches.html#113SP7

Example:

RO93768: LNX-X86-CA WA AGENT R11.3 SP7
 
RO93769: LNX-X64-CA WA AGENT R11.3 SP7

How can we determine which is the appropriate patch for our upgrade?

Environment

WA Agent 11.3 on Linux 

Resolution

The "LNX-X86" patches are for "Linux Intel 32-bit" version. Example:

RO93768: LNX-X86-CA WA AGENT R11.3 SP7

While the "LNX-X64" patches are for "Linux Intel 64-bit" version:

RO93769: LNX-X64-CA WA AGENT R11.3 SP7


You can run the "cybAgent -vv" command to determine the current WA Agent release:

Example: 

# ./cybAgent -vv
