Issue:
A freshly installed Informatica Agent will not start. The log only states that the Agent ended abnormally, and a forced trace is created with the following error:

java.lang.RuntimeException: pmcmd.exe.exe command does not exist under path \\<HostName>\Informatica\9.5.1\server\bin

Cause:
The Informatica Agent needs to be placed on the Informatica server.
Resolution:
Install the Informatica Agent on the Informatica server instead of the Automic Workload Automation server.
