JWP and JCP won't start and don't log anything

CA Automic Workload Automation - Automation Engine CA Automic One Automation


After a clone of the automationengine server, the JWP and JCP will not start. 
The files and environment are an exact duplicate of a working environment. 
Regular WP and CP processes start just fine
Java is the same and works with on other jar files. 
The process shows up and running, but:

  • no log is created
  • the JWP and JCP don't show up in the AWI
  • nothing is written to nohup or standard out.


Release : 12.3


Ultimately this was fixed by re-downloading the automationengine for 12.3.2 HF2, transferring to the server, and unzipping/reinstalling the automation engine component.  The issue was with the copied files, perhaps something was locked.
