We had a job which was in a completed status.

We changed the status to JOB_ON_ICE.

The agent which typically runs the job was restarted.

It appears to have sent back an old lost control / failure message.

That rescheduled the job and allowed it to start at its next scheduled start time, undoing the JOB_ON_ICE setting.

Is that expected behavior?



Release : 11.3

Component : CA Workload Automation AE (AutoSys)


The behavior regarding the JOB_ON_ICE followed by old FAILURE events causing the job to be rescheduled would be considered expected behavior.
