Our Autosys environment is on AWS. We wanted to route all the Autosys logs into shared mount.

For example, /opt/CA/WorkloadAutomationAE/autouser.PNS/out logs should be routed to some other shared mount.



Release : 11.3.6

Component : CA Workload Automation AE (AutoSys)


There is no parameter available to change the out location. This is hardcoded into the product that this directory is created under $AUTOUSER environmental variable directory.

You can make usage of symbolic link so that the out directory points to another location.

For example:

mv $AUTOUSER/out $AUTOUSER/out_previous

mkdir /TempAutosys/out

ln -s /TempAutosys/out $AUTOUSER/out

Now all your autosys log files will go into /TempAutosys/out directory
