Errors when installing AutoSys agent on RHEL8

CA Workload Automation AE


When installing the AutoSys agent on RHEL8 I'm getting this:

Encountered below warnings during installation:
[CAUAJM_W_116414] Unable to install or upgrade the "WA_AGENT" agent. The agent
installer return code is "255".
[CAUAJM_W_105001] Unable to start the "waae_agent-WA_AGENT" service.

The service looks like this:

[[email protected] ~]# LC_CTYPE=C systemctl status waae_agent-WA_AGENT.service

The log has some really strange permission errors - strange mainly because there are no restrictions on the files it's complaining about.
