Issue/Introduction

An issue on SAP server caused the SAP jobs to remain stuck in READY state.  Why did the jobs stay in READY?
Can they be force completed?

Cause

The WA Agents for SAP uses JCo or JavaConnector (provided by SAP) to connect to SAP and submit jobs.  If for some reason the JCo is unable to connect to SAP the jobs may show in READY state in the manager side.

Check if the job(s) have ran and completed in SAP.  Then, the job(s) may be force completed on manager / DE side.

Environment

Release : 11.3/11.4/11.5

Component : CA Workload Automation Agent for SAP

Resolution

Check to make sure that the SAP server is accepting connections.  Users can login via SAP GUI and may submit a test job.

It is likely that JCo may get stuck and is unable to retry the connection. Restart the WA Agent as JCo may need to reconnect again to the SAP.  

Note: Jobs that have already come to the agent (submit by manager) will not get removed on restart of the agent.

Additional Information

If on restart the agent logs show errors like these then again make sure that there is no network or connectivity issue with SAP server.
