2021XXXX 00001234+0500 [email protected]_SCH OS_COMPONENT 12345.12345678_1/WAAE_WF0.1/MAIN State FAILED Cmpc(9) SetEnd Status(Aborted, Signal 9) JobLogId(193XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX)

 

Environment

Release : 12.0

Component : Workload Automation System Agent

Cause

If the joblog doesn't show any PID before the job is aborted, then check if any security software is blocking root (or any other user) from executing scripts.  

 

Resolution

Check software like CyberArk or CA Control Minder have rules that may prevent scripts as root.
