Installer hangs on Windows 2012 R2 servers

CA Workload Automation AE


When attempting installations of the AutoSys Client and Agent from the DVD0000000002861 iso, only the Client is installed.

The Agent component installation fails with return code of "-1".

OpenJDK8U-jdk_x64_windows_hotspot_8u282b08 was installed on the server prior to installation and is still installed.


Release : 12.0

Component : CA Workload Automation AE (AutoSys)


It appears to be a bug in the installer when an existed Java is selected during the installation.


There are two workarounds:

1. Install the Client and Agent using bundled Java.

2. Install the Client and Agent using existed Java.

When the agent installation fails, in C:\Program Files\CA\WorkloadAutomationAE\autosys\, change the following lines:

JVM_DOT=C:\\Program Files\\AdoptOpenJDK\\jdk-\\jre
JVM_PATH=C:\\Program Files\\AdoptOpenJDK\\jdk-\\bin\\java.exe


JVM_DOT=C:\\Program Files\\CA\\WorkloadAutomationAE\\JRE_WA
JVM_PATH=C:\\Program Files\\CA\\WorkloadAutomationAE\\JRE_WA\\bin\\java.exe

Note: JRE_WA is a symbolic link to C:\\Program Files\\AdoptOpenJDK\\jdk-\\jre.

Run the following command to complete the agent installation:

D:\\modules\Agent\setup.exe -i SILENT -f "C:\Program Files\CA\WorkloadAutomationAE\autosys\"
