Client Automation - Any Version.


caf has been restarted on the Scalability Server but not on DOMAIN Manager.
Engine is using a Session ID for communication with amrss plugin which does not exist anymore.
This is causing a communication error with a delay of 3 minutes.
Engine generates a new Session ID and the next execution of collect job has not this 3 minutes of delay


When caf is restarted on the scalability server, Engine executing its collect job could be also restarted to empty the cache storing the session ID.
Example :
If the scalability Server is rebooted every day at 7am, Engine could be restarted everyday at 7.15am
This could be done using a .bat script.
See attached file restart_engine.txt (to rename as restart_engine.bat)
In the script replace SystemEngine by the correct name for Engine to restart
This script generates a log C:\Program Files (x86)\CA\DSM\logs\restart_engine.log
