Now kill the event_demon process to simulate a failover

ps -ef |grep event

autosys 65141 1 1 Mar23 ? 04:06:58 event_demon -A PRD

kill -9 65141

Run chk_auto_up to verify that the scheduler is not running

$ chk_auto_up

[04/06/2015 17:04:37] <CAUAJM_W_40310 The shadow scheduler has taken over. The system is no

longer in high availability mode.>

 

Now we can check for the alert in WCC dashboard
