CA Workload Automation AE

Issue/Introduction

I found this KB https://knowledge.broadcom.com/external/article/9635/how-to-change-autosys-db-loginuser-passw.html but it is very high level.

I want a techdoc I can save as PDF locally that goes into detail on the database password change procedure for Autosys R11.3.7. Also, The KB barely mentions how to manage the password update in autosys_secure.

Is there a techdoc that has detailed A to Z instructions for updating the password everywhere in Autosys it needs to be updated after we update the password in our SQL database?

Environment

Release : 11.3.6

Component : CA Workload Automation AE (AutoSys)

Resolution

The following steps are from https://knowledge.broadcom.com/external/article?articleId=18986 with an additional note.

Description:

The document is to help find out if the database password is changed. Also gives the steps to update the encrypted password in the configuration file.

Solution:

Environment Autosys 11.3.5
Problem        The scheduler and the application server fails to start with the following error messages

 

   CAUAJM_E_18401 Function <Olog> invoked from <openProc> failed <232>   
   CAUAJM_E_18402 ORA-01017: invalid username/password; logon denied 

 

Solution

You can check if the encrypted password in the config file is the same as the current password of the autosys user in database

$AUTOUSER/config.$AUTOSERV

 

#+---------
#
# Keyword: DBAccess=username/password
#
# Defines  the user name and password (in encrypted format) used by
# the scheduler and  application server to connect to the database.
# The database user name  and  password is  defined  during  the CA
# Workload Automation AE installation.
#
DBAccess=autosys/2B4A60C0D02773E4E3FF7452033F9D3C

 

We can find the encrypted password of the current autosys user by using the autosys_secure command

$ autosys_secure 
CA WAAE Security Utility 

Please select from the following options:

 

[1] Activate CA EEM instance security.
[2] Manage EDIT/EXEC superusers.
[3] Change database password.
[4] Change remote authentication method.
[5] Manage [email protected] or [email protected] users.
[6] Get encrypted password.

>  1
 
Enter password:  ******
 
Enter confirmation password: ******
 
CAUAJM_I_60062 Password= 2B4A60C0D02773E4E3FF7452033F9D3C

 

If these passwords do not match then copy this encrypted password to the $AUTOUSER/config.$AUTOSERV file and restart the CA WAAE services

Note:

After updating the password in the configuration file and restarting WAAE services, to update the encrypted password for autosys in AEDB table, use autosys_secure as follows:

$ autosys_secure

Please select from the following options:
[1] Revert to NATIVE instance security.
