Issue/Introduction

After upgrading to SC 17.2.06, we can't get SC to startup any PAM processes. SC, PAM and SDM connectivity tests are successful so all products are supposedly communicating with each other. But somehow it seems there is a missing piece where SC doesn't kick off a PAM process as expected.

 

For example, create a SC ticket with an associated PAM process to create a SDM tix or startup an approval process, but the PAM process doesn't startup. SC tix detail page just shows a Request in Progress screen and the tracking tab shows "No process instances" instead of the PAM process as expected.

PAM doesn't show any processes in its Operations tab.

We performed a migration upgrade from prod 14.1 env, so all settings should be in the database already. All hostnames have been updated as expected for the new 17.x env.
