Issue/Introduction

When executing jobs on an AIX Agent, the first JOBS ran every 10-15 minutes will fail with a return code 126 but all subsequent JOBS will be successful until this cycle repeats.

This has only been seen with:

  • The AIX Operating System
  • JOBS that utilize a non-local account

Cause

This was identified to be caused by a failure in an installed active directory agent not properly merging local and active directory user and group permissions.

Environment

Release : 12.3

Component : AUTOMATION ENGINE

Resolution

This was resolved by updating the OS components to the latest versions after confirming a known defect on the OS level.
