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.


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:



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


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

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.
