Environment:
CA WAAE 11.3.5/11.3.6CA Workload Automation Agent 11.3CA Workload Automation Agent for SAP
Cause:

The value specified in the sap_target_sys attribute is not a valid SAP application server defined in the SAP system.

Resolution:

Use a valid SAP application server host for the sap_target_sys attribute or remove that job attribute.

If the sap_target_sys attribute is not defined, the SAP system will select an application server based on available resources.
