The SAP Agent will not start.

After attempting to start the Agent it instantly falls, and creates a forced trace file. The file contains the above error message.



Cause type:
Root Cause: An incompatible (likely older) version of the sapjco3.jar file is being used.


Release: AUTWAB99000-11.0-Automic Workload Automation-Base Edition


An incompatible version of the sapjco3.jar file is being used. The version of the .jar file can be checked with the following command:

java -jar sapjco3.jar

For higher versions of the Agent the output should be the following (i.e. this is the output for the sapjco3.jar that should be used with version 11.2.7):
