CA Workload Automation AE


We are having a problem that is affecting all our ongoing projects. The File Triggers are not working properly when using the "*" character. When used, we receive the following error or similar for other File Triggers:

The \\\cdpq\ta\DVAR\Interfaces\Input\Algo is unaccessible or an error has occured

Howver when we remove the "*", the file trigger works properly.

Would you please help us with this issue?


Release : 11.3.6/12.0

Component : AutoSys Workload Automation


The login user of the agent service, localsystem, does not have permissions to navigate the shared folder.  Specify another user as the watch file Windows user and the job runs without error.
