Service restart after upgrade

Issue:

We are upgrading one of our Workload Automation AE environments and it does not provide the option to choose whether the services should start after the upgrade. In some situations, it may be necessary to prevent the services from starting after the upgrade completes. Is there any way to have the upgrade provide the option?

 

Environment:  

Workload Automation AE 11.3.x

Platform - UNIX/LINUX

 

Resolution: 

If you are performing a NEW install, YES you can select to NOT have the processes start automatically after the install completes

If you are upgrading, the upgrade process looks at the original replies provided at the time of the initial install and will reuse them. 

If you need to check or change the settings see the file: 

/opt/CA/installer/administration/admi/CAWorkloadAutomationAE/11.3*/CAWorkloadAutomationAE.@prm 

Example of a Change: 

Change the following: 

#parameter: $Sched_Start , 1 , Start scheduler after install , 0 ; 

To: 

#parameter: $Sched_Start , 0 , Start scheduler after install , 0 ; 

The above example would prevent the scheduler from starting immediately after the install / upgrade.
