archive_events -m appears to have deleted live machines

Updated On:


CA Workload Automation AE


The DBMaint or archive_events process appears to have removed machine defintions it should not have.

This resulted in AutoSys not being able to run some jobs until the machine definitions were added back.

autorep -m does not show the machine




Release : 11.3.6

Component :


For now comment out archive_events entries in the %AUTOSYS%/bin/DBMaint.bat that archive machines to avoid the problem.

See: PROB #:  4879    

Machines being deleted that should not.

This will be addressed in a future update / patch.
