How to configure the 11.3.x "System Agent" (WA_AGENT) to act as the 4.5.x "Remote Agent" (auto_remote) for sourcing job profiles.

By default, the r11.3 agent acts differently than the 4.5 Remote Agent for sourcing job profiles and global profiles.

Solution:

You can configure the system agent parameters in order to get a similar behavior, set the following parameters in "agentparm.txt" file under the Agent installation directory:

oscomponent.noforceprofile=true

oscomponent.cmdprefix.force=true

The agent will execute a temporary shell script without sourcing the user's profile.

oscomponent.profiles.src.delay=true

The agent drops the sourcing of the profiles into the temporary shell script.

oscomponent.profiles.global.override=true

If the job profile is present, the agent sources the job profile. The EWAGLOBALPROFILE (/etc/auto.profile) is not sourced.
If the job profile is not present, the agent sources EWAGLOBALPROFILE.
Restart the Agent for these parameter's setting to be taken into account.
