- Unlinking and Linking the task again still keeps showing error after every execution.

- Changing the job to another Engine result in same error.


Client Automation - All Versions


Reviewing Engine logs after the task is executed shows the task is being executed correctly:

2020-11-24 09:43:21 Engine Started
2020-11-24 09:44:26 Performing Job:Default Software Contents Download Job
2020-11-24 09:44:26 MDB,1433
2020-11-24 09:44:26 mdb 1433 MDB
2020-11-24 09:44:26 Engine running on manager.

Checking CIC logs shows the execution is made correctly:

[CCMain] INFO  [] - ****** CIC cycle: 8 started ********* [CIC version: 14.0.2000.0199 (I201703151749D)]
[CCMain] INFO  [] - Entered into method : checkstatus()

[CCMain] INFO  [] - Cycle 8 completed with status: OK. Elapsed time 1 minutes.


But when running the job manually, the following message can be seen:

Which is also seen on Wrapper log:

STATUS | wrapper  | 2020/11/24 09:44:28 | Launching a JVM...
INFO   | jvm 1    | 2020/11/24 09:44:29 | Wrapper (Version 3.2.3)

INFO   | jvm 1    | 2020/11/24 09:44:29 | [] - Another CIC is already running, aborting
STATUS | wrapper  | 2020/11/24 09:44:31 | <-- Wrapper Stopped


That message means that CIC is already running by a previous execution but it never ended successfully.

CIC is a Java application, so when it's manually started, a new Java instance starts on Task Manager, triggered by the logged in user:

And when it ends successfully, this instances stops by itself:

If this doesn't happening, the following procedure can be followed:

1.- Unlink Content Download job from Engine.

2.- Kill any Java.exe that is currently running on DM server (where CIC is installed), verifying first that none of them correspond to a critical system running on the server.

3.- Link the task Again to the Engine.

4.- Start the job from the Engine or manually from CMD.
