The following error is seen in the $AUTOUSER/out/event_demon.$AUTOSERV logs:

getaddrinfo failed: System error


The getaddrinfo() function is a Linux system function that can be used to convert a text string representation of an IP address to an 'addrinfostructure' that contains a 'sockaddr' structure for the IP address and other information. This is used by AutoSys to create socket connections to other instance components across the network.

If this OS function fails, any errors it returns will be logged into the Scheduler log : $AUTOUSER/out/event_demon.$AUTOSERV


Release : 11.3.6

Component : CA Workload Automation AE (AutoSys)


The getaddrinfo() function is not controlled by AutoSys. The AutoSys application calls the getaddrinfo OS function. It needs troubleshooting by a System Admin and possibly the OS vendor.
