Issue/Introduction

In older versions of the Unix Agent (v8) some of the messenger binaries (UCX*M) were provided in capital letters. This led to them being referenced in the .ini file as:

UC_EX_JOB_MD=UCXJUS8M 

In newer versions, this was changed to lower case:

UC_EX_JOB_MD=ucxju64m

When upgraded, this can lead to jobs that were started before the upgrade failing as they are unable to reference the messenger.

 

Environment

Release : 11.2

Component : AUTOMATION ENGINE

Resolution

Setting a symbolic link up for the messenger so both the lower and upper case messengers are available.

After a period when all the 'old' jobs are completed, you could sever the link and have the 'upgraded' install with the lower case only.

For example:

ln -s ucxju64m UCXJUS8M
