Is there any way to choose the CA Workload Automation AE Scheduler, Application Server services to NOT to start immediately after an upgrade?

The Workload Automation AE binary does not provide an option to choose whether the services should start after the upgrade setup.
In situations, it starts the scheduler triggering jobs soon after the upgrade completes. It is necessary to prevent the services from starting after the upgrade setup completes.
Workload Automation AE 11.3.x
Platform - UNIX/LINUX

For the NEW install, the options are available to choose to NOT have the processes start automatically after the install completes
However, in case of upgrading, the upgrade process looks at the original replies provided at the time of the initial install and will reuse them. 

The following procedure details the steps required to change the settings which were opted as part of original install: 

  • Take a backup of files: 
    • $AUTOSYS/installs/vars$AUTOSERV
    • $CASHCOMP/installer/administration/admi/CAWorkloadAutomationAE/*/CAWorkloadAutomationAE.@prm
  • Check the $AUTOSYS/installs/vars$AUTOSERV files for the following - set the value to "0" if the component should not start after the upgrade setup completes:


  • Check the $CASHCOMP/installer/administration/admi/CAWorkloadAutomationAE/*/CAWorkloadAutomationAE.@prm file for the following - set the value to "0" if the component should not automatically restart:

#parameter: $Agent_Start , 0 , Start agent after install , 0 ;
#parameter: $Sched_Start , 0 , Start scheduler after install , 0 ;
#parameter: $iGateWay_Start , 0 , Start iGateWay after install , 0 ;
#parameter: $AppSvr_Start , 0 , Start App Server after install , 0 ;
#parameter: $WebSvr_Start , 0 , Start Web Server after install , 0 ;
