After the installation of the system agent from the CA WAAE 11.3.6 SP6 DVD "DVD04143006E_Linux_Unix.iso" image, 

The Java version installed in /opt/CA/WorkloadAutomationAE/SystemAgent/WA_AGENT/jre/release

is not 1.8 like on the other platforms.

However we see in the resulting installation, the Java version is 1.7.0_131 instead

.. SystemAgent/WA_AGENT/jre/release -


CA Workload Automation Agent for:Solaris sparc 32-bit11.3, Service Pack 7, Maintenance Level 0, Build 979

The System Agent coming from WAAE 11.3.6 SP6 is 32 bit

and Solaris, used  java 1.7 for 32-bit



It is documented  that the System Agent on Solaris 32-bit agent distributes JRE 1.7 only.

If you need JRE 1.8 then you can go with the 64-bit agent from the System Agent DVD
