We have noticed that the agent UC_EX_HOSTCHAR value got changed after reboot the agent.
This happened for an agent for which a wildcard entry (LINUX*) was available in UC_EX_HOSTCHAR.
Nevertheless, the Agent name was added to UC_EX_HOSTCHAR and the value DEFAULT was added.
Due to the fact that ANONYMOUS_JOB=Y was not present in UC_HOSTCHAR_DEFAULT the job failed with:
U02001007 User 'automic' is unknown or an invalid password has been provided.
Release : 12.3.1 / 12.2.4 / 12.1.6
Component : AUTOMATION ENGINE
This is a bug
Remove the additional entry from UC_EX_HOSTCHAR, the wildcard entry should take effect again after restarting the Agent.
Update to a fix version listed below or a newer version if available.
