CA Workload Automation AE


We have upgraded our test AutoSys environment to version 12. 

We find that /opt/CA/iTechnology was modified, but the JRE installed there remains at version 1.5.

Can we remove /opt/CA/iTechnology, or at least the JRE?


Release : All Supported Versions

Component : WCC, WAAE, EEM, System Agent

If you still find something old, check that you have no environment variables pointing to the old JRE.
env|grep JAVA
grep JAVA $AUTOUSER/autosys.*
grep jre $AUTOUSER/autosys.*

If you find nothing pointing using it then rename the directory initially.
Confirm normal operations occur without issue, start and stop the product, issue commands, etc...
If all is well then remove the old jre.
