CA Automic Workload Automation - Automation Engine

Issue/Introduction

From the installation Doc (https://docs.automic.com/documentation/webhelp/english/AA/12.3/DOCU/12.3/Automic%20Automation%20Guides/Content/Installation_Manual/AE/InstalltheAE_UNIX.htm#link1) it is stated that :

  • Root authorization during the installation. Not required for operating the Automation Engine.
  • Own UNIX user ID for the Automation Engine (default: uc4, Home = /opt/uc4, Shell: ksh). The shell is only necessary during installation.


Is it correct ?

Cause

No, those statements are wrong, ROOT is not necessary at all to install the AE.
Also, the "KSH" shell is not mandatory.

Environment

Release : 12.3

Component : AUTOMATION ENGINE

Resolution

Documentation update will be done (release date TBD) :

This will be removed :

Root authorization during the installation. Not required for operating the Automation Engine.

This will be changed from :

Own UNIX user ID for the Automation Engine (default: uc4, Home = /opt/uc4, Shell: ksh). The shell is only necessary during installation.

To : 

Own UNIX user ID for the Automation Engine (default: uc4, Home = /opt/uc4)
