CA Workload Automation AE - System Agent (AutoSys)


Does the R12 Autosys agent support systemctl for controlling startups or just the init.d?


Release : 12.0

Component : CA Workload Automation System Agent


Yes, you can use systemctl to control the agent services. You can configure this through OS level chkconfig command.

  1. Copy the agent start script from the agent directory to /etc/init.d
  2. Execute command string chkconfig --add <agent_start_script>
  3. If you run chkconfig, you will now see the agent service as part of the config..
  4. Start the agent by issuing command systemctl start <agent_service_name>

This process will allow for service to be started at boot time. It will also provide support for using the systemctl command to control the service..
