Issue/Introduction

Users see the following error messages in spool output:

D:\CA\WA Agent\spool\MANAGER\MAIN\APPL1234\SOMEJOB (Access is denied)

 

 

Cause

The "access denied" is usually related to the permission of user executing the job. 

Environment

Release : 12.0

Component : Workload Automation System Agent

Resolution

The WA Agent runs the job as the user defined in the job.  Check the permission of the user (in job) and make sure it has read and write permission to the agent spool directory.
