We need to disable the scheduler process at start-up on our DR servers. 



Release : 11.3.6

Component : CA Workload Automation AE (AutoSys)


There are a few different ways you can configure your system so the scheduler does not start at boot time.

You can manually remove the references to the scheduler in your init script rc directories...


cd /etc

find . -name S*waae_sched* -print



Then remove the files.

Or on unix/linux you can use the unisrvcntr command to remove the files


unisrvcntr register --StartInit=NULL waae_sched.MOM

the NULL tells it to have no startup scripts for my service

Or to have it start them during boot you specify the run levels.


unisrvcntr register --StartInit=35 waae_sched.MOM

that would put the files back in the /etc/rc.d/rc3.d and rc5.d directories so the os would use them during startup.

FYI - You may also see files that start with K<#> for the waae components. The K is for Killing aka the system uses during shutdown. There is an option --StopInit for unisrvcntr as well. If you run "unisrvcntr" with no options you will see the usage page. For windows, it would just be a matter of toggling the windows service to manual or disabled.
