Issue/Introduction

When we run the 'autorep -M' command, the agent status is Missing. When we start up the agent services, the services stop immediately. 

Cause

To determine why an agent will not start, check the nohup.stderr file in the agent installation directory.

Environment

CA Workload Automation Agent AE r11.3+

Resolution

========================== 

When an agent plugin  cannot be initialized, the agent will shutdown. This is the expected behavior.
