Environment:
OS Version: N/A
Cause:
Cause type:
By design
Root Cause: The job messenger is a 32 bit application and values larger will become truncated.
The job messenger has been upgraded to 64 bit in 12.1
Resolution:
Update to a fix version listed below or a newer version if available which allows for 63 length host names.

Fix Status: Released

Fix Version(s):
Component(s): Agent Unix

Automation Engine 12.1 - Available
Additional Information:
Workaround :
Instead of using host names, use the ip address.
