Cause

Unix Permissions

Environment

Release : 12.3.x

Component : AUTOMATION ENGINE

Resolution

The Automic Admin was starting the Service Manager with a non-root user.

The particular agent in question 'UC4 Unix-Agent' was owned by root and a group that the non-root user was not a member of.

Once we added the Service Manager account to the group that owned our Unix Agent -> everything started fine.
