R12.0 Agent silent installation using properties files

CA Workload Automation AE



I am trying to run a silent installation of R12.0 Autosys Agent using a properties file. BUT in your binary the default to install the agent is set to "AUTOSYS_INSTALL_LOCATION = /opt/CA/WorkloadAutomationAE/..."

However, I want to use a different location such as : "AUTOROOT_PATH=/opt/CA/WA_Agent"



Release : 12.0, 12.0 SP1

Component : Workload Automation System Agent


Starting with the R12 release of the Agent, the install was updated to append SystemAgent/<name of Agent> to the install location. With the older versions of the agents when it was installed in a different directory when an upgrade was being performed to a new release it was failing because it did not know how to find the AutoSys SDK. A lot of our Clients have multiple agents installed on the same machine. So that is why we append SystemAgent/<name of agent> to the install location. So with the R12 release you can specify /opt/CA/WA_Agent, but it will append SystemAgent/<name of Agent> to it.
