Issue:
We have installed the WA Agent "Remote Execution agent" plugin.
 
Then we defined the <machine>.properties file as below:
 
# cat linux462.properties
host=linux462
port=22
protocol=ssh2
type=unix
spoolHome=/home/autosys/spool
default.user=autosys
default.password=#######
 
But when running the PROXY job it fails with the following error:
 
04/22/2018 12:22:57.748 CET+0100 2 TCP/IP Controller Plugin.Transmitter pool thread <Regular:2>.CybObjectQueue.peek[:234] - peek 20180422 10025874-0100 WAP_SCH proxy 1567.10042584_1/WAAE
_WF0.1/MAIN State SUBERROR Failed Status(Submission problem) LStatus("Not a number: r") SetEnd Cmpc(1) Plugin(proxy)
 
 
Environment:
WA Agent 11.3 SP4 + Remote Execution Plugin on Linux
Cause:
Problem related to the default password not being encrypted as required.
Resolution:
The encountered problem with error Status(Submission problem) LStatus("Not a number: r") is related to the “default.password” in <machine>.properties file.
 
The recommended solution is to make sure that the “default.password” in <machine>.properties file
is encrypted using the "password" command under the <agent-installation-directory>, with no leading or trailing spaces.
 
Examlpe:
 
# cd /opt/CA/WorkloadAutomationAE/SystemAgent/WA_AGENT
 
# ls -al
…..
-rwxr-xr-x 1 autosys autosys 176 Feb 21 05:24 password   < =====
…..
 
# ./password
Please enter your password:
Please reenter your password:
Encrypted password: 663257C69582136B < ====== password to use in <machine>.properties file
 
Problem resolved by applying the solution.
