Description:

Despite having added a user and password to AutoSys via 'autosys_secure', when scheduling a job to a UUJMA it fails with the following error: Submission failed, reason = WARNING - Bad password for user <username>

Solution:

Disable password checking on UUJMA:

  1. open file /opt/CA/UnicenterUUJMA/sche/config/ExtNodeL.sch

  2. Find the following setting: -n=*,*,E

  3. Change it to: -n=*,*,D

This will allow the job to be scheduled using the 'owner' defined in the job and in 'autosys_secure'.
