Description:

We are configuring Agent aliasing for clustered environments. We have finished the settings for Agents, but couldn't find an example for configuring the application package as an alias Agent in the Agentdef table for CA ESP Workload Automation.

Solution:

The alias Agent is defined the same way as the normal real agent using the IP address of the Cluster Server. Be sure that each agent has the same encryption key and port number.

With the example under "Configuring Agent Aliasing for clustered environments" in the Administrator's Guide for agent, presume AGENTA is defined as:
AGENT AGENTA ADDRESS(10.1.1.15) PORT(6001) NT ASCII TCPIP ENCRIPT(X'0102030405060708')

Alias agent PKG1 and PKG2 should be defined as following in agentdef table:
AGENT PKG1 ADDRESS(IP address of Cluster server1) PORT(6001) NT ASCII TCPIP ENCRIPT(X'0102030405060708')
AGENT PKG2 ADDRESS(IP address of Cluster server2) PORT(6001) NT ASCII TCPIP ENCRIPT(X'0102030405060708')

Then the "alias" agents PKG1 and PKG2 should be used in JOB definition in ESP application.
