Issue/Introduction

If I have 2 AutoSys instances running on a single RHEL 7 machine, can I run them both with 

     CrossPlatformScheduling=2

Or is it the case that only one instance can function as an agent and accept job submissions from an external scheduling manager?

Environment

Release : 11.3.6

Component : CA Workload Automation AE (AutoSys)

Resolution

As of 11.3.6 SP8, you can have only one AutoSys instance with CrossPlatformScheduling enabled, because CCI submitC server can be only one per node and it cannot be shared across AutoSys instances of same machines.


But AutoSys r12 uses RESTful webservices for corss-platform scheduling, hence you can have any number of instances with CrossPlatformScheduling enabled in r12.
