The Java Work Process (JWP) is another process of the CA Automic Automation and it has its own connection string UCSRV.INI file to be able to connect to the target database as shown below:

SQLDRIVERCONNECT=jdbc:sqlserver://<servername>\<database instance>:1433;databaseName=<database name>

By default, the port number used by the MSSQL Server is 1433. However, the MSSQL server can also be configured to use dynamic port as shown in the screenshot below.

Products: CA Automic Automation Engine, MSSQL Server
Environment: Windows


If the MSSQL server is configured to use a dynamic port, please remove the port number 1433 from the JDBC connection string as shown below.

SQLDRIVERCONNECT=jdbc:sqlserver://<servername>\<database instance>;databaseName=<database name>
