Issue/Introduction

I'm trying to understand why, when the instance is in a failed-over state with the Primary Scheduler down, that restarting the Scheduler via unisrvcntr give a success message but doesn't actually start the Scheduler.  The only way I can get the Scheduler to start is via eventor.

Environment

Release : 11.3.6

Component : CA Workload Automation AE (AutoSys)

Resolution

The issue occurs sometimes when a WAAE service process is terminated abnormally.
As a workaround, the WAAE server process can be started up using "as_server -A $AUTOSERV" or "event_demon -A $AUTOSERV".
