Question:

Cross instance dependency status initially listed as "UNKNOWN".

 

When you first add a cross instance dependency, the initial status for the dependency is listed as "UNKNOWN", even if that job has a status such as SUCCESS.

 

Is this expected?

 

Environment:
Product: Workload Automation AE 11.xPlatform: Windows, UNIX, LinuxDatabase: Oracle, Sybase, MS SQL
Answer:

Initially the status will be "UNKNOWN". Once the dependency is in place, AutoSys will begin tracking any new CHANGE_STATUS events for that job. Those CHANGE_STATUS updates will be shared with the other instance(s) and will be reflected in the dependency status shown in the job_depends command.

 

This is working as designed.
