What would the behavior be if an "AUTOPING" command was issued to the Agent from CAWA AE (Autosys)?

CA Workload Automation AE - Business Agents (AutoSys), CA Workload Automation AE - Scheduler (AutoSys), CA Workload Automation Agent, CA Workload Automation Agents, DSERIES- SERVER, CA Workload Automation DE - System Agent (dSeries)
Following are the expected behavior:
The AUTOPING command, when executed from a prompt within an Autosys client, issues a CONTROL STATUS AFM to the Tandem Agent, to which the Agent replies with RESPONSE STATUS message. However, an AUTOPING cannot be submitted as a Job to Tandem Agent by specifying it within an AFM message (for example, Command="AUTOPING" would probably result in State Suberror).
If the job is running on a machine that has Autosys client then AUTOPING command can run as a job.
If the AUTOPING command itself is not implemented for a specific platform, then you cannot run it as a job.
