Issue/Introduction

When one parameter is found multiple times in agentparm.txt, which one is used?

Environment

Release : 11.5, R12.0

Component : CA Workload Automation System Agent

Resolution

Anytime, when the agentparm.txt has two or more entries of same parameter, the last entry is used.  All previous ones are ignored by the agent.

For example if two entires for "oscomponent.validshell" are present in agentparm.txt, the first will be ignored by agent.   The second one will be used by the agent.
