Issue/Introduction

WA Agent will continue to run the job even if the UNIX account’s login access was blocked (denied) by the PAM configuration (/etc/pam.conf).

Example pam config

myapp        auth      sufficient   pam_allow.so.1
myapp        account   required     pam_unix_account.so.1
myapp        account   required     pam_list.so.1 compat
myapp        session   required     pam_allow.so.1

Environment

Release : 11.5

Component : CA Workload Automation System Agent

Cause

Agent ignored the PAM settings for account in the pam.conf

Resolution

This issue has been resolved in the system agent R12.1.

Upgrade the agent to r12.1 or later.
