Issue/Introduction

Need to change a Remote Autosys Agent PROD Instant on a DEV server to a Remote DEV Autosys Instant

  • Can I just change the configure files, or?
  • Do I have to uninstall the prod instant and install the DEV instant?

Environment

Release : 11.3.6

Component : CA Workload Automation System Agent

Resolution

In order to point the agent to another scheduling manager, you must either

  1. Add the manager definition to the agentparm.txt file and comment out the old manager definition if it will no longer be used.
  2. Update the existing manager definition if you will no longer need to point to the old manager.

The parameters of concern are:
communication.managerid_1=
communication.manageraddress_1=
communication.managerport_1=

Example:
communication.managerid_1=ESP_LVNPROD007014_6500
communication.manageraddress_1=lvnprod007014.bpc.broadcom.net
communication.managerport_1=6507
