Description:

Problem encountered when the job owner's default shell is set to CSH. Job fails because the job profile is sourced using the owner's default shell (defined in /etc/passwd file).

Solution:

The solution is to set the following parameters in file "agentparm.txt" on the agent and restart the agent:

oscomponent.defaultshell=/bin/sh
oscomponent.defaultshell.force=true

Hence you can keep the job owner's SHELL set to CSH and run the job successfully by using the above setting for the Agent.
