Script functions dependent upon Agents, ignore Maximum Runtime when the Agent is not active


Article ID: 129020

CA Automic Workload Automation - Automation Engine


When you run a script with a script function that requires an Agent(Get_Filesystem, Preps_Process_File, oder Prep_Process_Filename), 
if the Agent is not active - the task must wait on the host and you have a Maximum Runtime defined, the task does not end after the defined maximum runtime. 
The task just sits there waiting until the Agent is started or it is manually cancelled. 
If the Agent is started way after the maximum runtime the task will successfully run to completion. 


Release: AUTWAB99000-12.2-Automic Workload Automation-Base Edition
