Default Software Contents Download job shows ERROR after every execution, few validations are made and everything seems correct:
- Connectivity with content server is OK.
- Connectivity against the MDB is also OK.
- Latest patches are visible on Patch Management.
- Latest signatures can be seen updated on Domain Manager.
- 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 DM.server.name mdb MDB.server.name 1433 MDB
2020-11-24 09:44:26 Engine running on manager.
Checking CIC logs shows the execution is made correctly:

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...

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.
