CA Automic Workload Automation - Automation Engine
On a system running Unix/Linux operating systems, if the agent installation directory has "#" like agent# 11, the jobs will fail when using csh or -csh .
The Automation Engine (AE) agent is unable to handle a pound sign (#) character with csh or with -csh .
This works fine when using the ksh shell.
If the agent is installed in the path /automic/UC4/agent#12 , the job will fail with the following error message in the report log:
/automic/UC4/agent: Permission denied.
This is a limitation on csh. For example, if you have the following script and execute it outside Unix Agent.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Do the following (test it first on your test environment):
/home/UC4/ae11/agent: No such file or directory.
- Modify the HEADER.UNIX and TRAILER.UNIX as shown in the attached files
