Workload Automation Agent

Issue/Introduction

Is it possible for two AutoSys instances on different machines but with the same instance name to use the same agent? 

Environment

Release : 11.3.6/12.0

Component : AutoSys Workload Automation

Resolution

While it is ok to have multiple active AutoSys instances using the same agent, the two instances cannot have the same instance name. The agent will end up sending job status messages to a different scheduler than the one that submitted the job. This results in the job getting stuck in the STARTING or RUNNING state on the instance where the job originated.
