The WAAE agent that was working fine suddenly stopped working. An autoping to the agent fails and jobs go to STARTJOB fail.
The agent installation had disappeared. The /opt/CA directory was missing and there were no WAAE packages listed in 'rpm -qa'.
Root Cause Possibilities:
1. Agent was uninstalled.
2. The agent machine is a VM that was reverted to a snapshot prior to agent installation.
Reinstall agent from DVD image or restore from backup if available.
