The Windows batch job does not allow close parenthesis ")" in the password in the Arguments to pass field.
CA Workload Automation DE (dSeries)
Caused by the close parenthesis ")" in the Arguments to pass field.
Assign the password to a WOB variable in a javascript and used the variable in the arguments to pass field;
For example;
1. In Services -> JavaScripts, define a Javascript named say PASSWD with the following JavaScript;
2. In the Windows job definition, click on JavaScripts under Options
3. Select the JavaScript name PASSWD 'At job run time'
4. In Arguments to pass: %WOB.passwd
