Agent not starting


  • Not able to start agent
  • Agent disconnected
  • Jobs are stuck in status waiting for host
  • Host is not active in system overview
  • Agent is not processing jobs


Files needed for analysis:

  • Agent logfile from the time the error occurred (default location: temp folder of the Agent)
  • Agent logfile that contains the startup section or ini file of the Agent. (default location: bin folder of the Agent)
  • Communication Processes (CP) logfiles from the time the error occurred. (default location temp folder of the Automation Engine)

The following message can be found in the logfile of the Agent:

U2000019 The Server is reporting as system 'Automic'. Disconnecting again.

Enter the correct system name in the [GLOBAL] section of the Agents ini.file:

Restart the Agent.
