We have a Windows server where they are using the database plugin.
It is installed on a DR server and the database is currently down and we cannot run a job.
Is there another way to test the plugin to verify it is working so when they need to run jobs we know it is available?
Release : 11.3
Component : CA Workload Automation System Agent
Without access to your database you cannot really test the database plugin.
If you have a second system with a working database plugin you can compare
your new system with it. Compare the agentparm.txt file settings, not their
exact values but that the setting for the db plugin are present and have
appropriate values for your specific databases/environment.
Also make sure your job owner's id/password is in autosys_secure.
And depending on what is available to you to test with, make sure you can resolve
and reach the database from the agent plugin host.
Meaning test things like
"telnet host1234 1522
"sqlplus [email protected]"
Also, if there is/was a problem installing the database plugin itself typically you
would also not be able to start the agent itself. You would see errors in the
nohup* files or db* log files on the agent.
