DSERIES- SERVER CA Workload Automation DE - System Agent (dSeries)



The CA Workload Automation DE R11.3 now requires a valid license. If a license has not been applied, then the users will get emails sent out by the server with a subject of the "CA Workload Automation License Failure".


If the CA Workload Automation DE server is the first CA product to be installed on the host, then CA licensing program has be to initialized. The Workload Automation install directory has a sub-directory called 'ca_license_bins'. There are two batch or shell scripts in this sub-folder. From Window CMD prompt or from Linux/UNIX shell, run this script: (Linux/UNIX)
ca_lic_ia_install.bat (In Windows)

The script will install CA licensing program under:

/opt/CA/SharedComponents/ca_lic (Linux/UNIX)
C:\Program Files\CA\SharedComponents\CA_LIC (In Windows)

Next, copy the ca.olf file in the above CA_LIC directory. A newly created CA_LIC folder will not have any ca.olf file in it.

NB. The ca.olf file should be provided by the CA Licensing.

To verify the licenses, log into the CA Workload Automation DE server from the Desktop Client as ADMIN. Navigate to CLI perspective. Enter 'LICENSESTATUS' in command bar and press enter. Then you should see the message "License has been enforced…."

Note : If ca.olf file already exists, use the 'mergeolf' utility to merge the new ca.olf to an existing file. Please backup your existing files before running the merge utility


mergeolf <new_olf> [-c <current_olf>] [-o <output_olf>] [-b <backup_olf>] [-d <debug_log>]
