Cause

Data integrity.

Environment

Release : 12.3

Component : AUTOMATION ENGINE

Resolution

If an Automic Agent is improperly shutdown we don't clear out the agent's record in the dbo.MQSRV table.
Until this is cleared out (or the Agent's name changed) you will not be able to start the Agent.

Delete the entry as follows (please have a DBA check this statement before running and always use caution when running delete statements):

SQL Server:
delete from mqsrv where mqsrv_name='AGENT_NAME'

Oracle:
delete from mqsrv where mqsrv_name='AGENT_NAME';
commit;

Additional Information

Once the delete statement is performed and the agent started again, the connection to the AE will be successful.
