When attempting to run a UNIX job either on a new agent or after updating the password, the job fails with a FAULT_OTHER - Start impossible status. Clicking on the details of the job in the Process Monitoring perspective in the AWI shows something like:
Last message U02001007 User 'username' is unknown or an invalid password has been provided.
Release : 12.3
Component : AUTOMATION ENGINE
In this case an invalid or corrupt password
From the Attributes tab of the job, open the login object assigned to the job
Remove the password that is on the line for the agent that should be running the job
Re-enter the password for the job and save the login object
Run the job
There are some other reasons for a U02001007 error code. A search for this "U-code" should bring back some other results as well.
