Issue/Introduction

When I look at the JIL script using the -q switch for this machine, I get:

$ autorep -qM sapb2pdb

/* ----------------- sapb2pdb ----------------- */

insert_machine: sapb2pdb
type: a
factor: 1.00 
port: 7520
node_name: sapb2pdb.company.com
agent_name: WA_AGENT
encryption_type: DEFAULT
character_code: ASCII

However, when I use the -p switch, I get this:

$ autorep -pM sapb2pdb


/* ----------------- sapb2pdb ----------------- */

Machine Name:       sapb2pdb
Type:               a
Node Name:          lparnnnn9
Agent Name:         WA_AGENT
Operating System:   AIX for ppc64
Agent Release:      11.3
Agent Build:        946, Service Pack 6, Maintenance Level 0
Active Plug-ins:
    clearfiles
    communicationmanager
    filebrowser
    filemon
    ftp
    nop
    objmon
    outbox
    refresh
    router
    runner
    setproperty
    status

Where is it pulling the lparnnnn9 value from?

Environment

Release : 11.3.6

Component : CA Workload Automation AE (AutoSys)

Resolution

The node_name in the output of "autorep -M -p" is from the host name obtained by the corresponding agent for which the machine is defined for. The information is stored in the AEDB. If it's not yet available in the database, the sever will request the Agent for the information.
