Issue/Introduction

I installed an Autosys Client at release 11.3.6, but I cannot find the "forecast" utility



is the  "forecast" command missing on the Unix machine running the other Autosys Client utilities?

Environment

CA WAAE 11.3.6 on Unix/Linux but it might happen on any other Autosys release

Resolution

The "forecast" utility requires database interactions similar to the application server and the scheduler

It is distributed with the server installation and not with the Command Line Utilities

In addition, forecast requires DB client libraries

A possible solution is to execute an Autosys job to execute the forecast report on the scheduler itself
