Unix Agent onboarding not successful if CP has 0 connections


Article ID: 87332


Updated On:


CA Automic Workload Automation - Automation Engine


Error Message :

The Unix Agent is not able to connect successfully to the Automation Engine (AE) if the Communication Process (CP) which the Agent is connected to has "0" connections at that time.

The Agent stops trying to connect when any CP delivers "0 connections".   However, the Agent process remains active.


When this error is encountered the Unix Agent is not shown in the System Overview and messages similar to those below will be displayed in the Agent log.

Cause type:
By design
Root Cause: There was a recent change in code to allow a CP’s to have 99999 connections. In order to be compliant with our protocol the connection count is divided by 10 which can cause the CP to send a connection count of ‘0’, causing the UNIX Agent to stop.
