CA Workload Automation DE - System Agent (dSeries)

Issue/Introduction

Users may need to see the cipher and algorithm suite for audit purposes.

Environment

Release : 12.0

Component : CA Workload Automation System Agent

Resolution

The WA Agent has to be upgraded to R12.  Enable the following properties in the agentparam.txt

external.log.level=5
ftp.scp.debug.enable=true
 

 

Additional Information

Also, the "external.log.level" will create a very large logs and may fill up the drive or directory.  Enable spool cleanup for every few hours.  E..g

runnerplugin.spool.clean.enable=true
runnerplugin.spool.expire=12h
runnerplugin.spool.sleep=11h

The above setting will clear logs every 12 hours

The information will be captured in joblog files for jobs that are executed as  "Run As User (RunExternal)".  To avoid the joblog and spools getting cleaned up on successful run of the job.

agent.spool.success.autocleanup=false
oscomponent.joblog.success.autocleanup=false
