Issue/Introduction

When attempting to use a direct call to the job messenger within a JOBS, similar to:

:  set &testr# = hi
:  p "&test#"
&uc_jobmd cmd="echo &test#"

The command fails with: 

Error 'Unable to connect agent', reason: 10049 - The requested address is not valid in its context.
Error 'Unable to connect agent', reason: 10049 - The requested address is not valid in its context.

This has, currently, only been seen with older (v11) agents on a v12 system.

 

Cause

Changes in architecture for IPv4 and IPv6 compatibility

Environment

Release : 12.3

Component : AUTOMATION ENGINE

Resolution

Upgrade the Agent to the same version as the Automation Engine, with the recommendation of at least 12.2 for all components.
