Configuring a fault-tolerant agent

About this task

After installing a fault-tolerant agent, define the workstation in the database and link the workstation from the master. You can perform this task by using the Dynamic Workload Console or the command line interface. For information, see User's Guide and Reference. The following is an example of how to configure a fault-tolerant agent after installation using the command line interface:

  1. Log in to the master domain manager as TWS_user.
  2. Set the environment variables by running
  3. Create the workstation definition in the HCL Workload Automation database. Open a command line window and enter the following commands:
  4. Type the workstation definition in the text editor. For example:
    CPUNAME F235007_00
       DESCRIPTION "fault-tolerant agent"
       OS UNIX
       NODE lab235007
       TCPADDR 31111
         TYPE FTA
         AUTOLINK ON
    Run JnextPlan with the option -for 0000 to add the agent workstation definition to the plan and to send the Symphony file to it. For more information about workstation definitions, see Workstation definition.
    Note: Ensure that the global option carryforward is set to all, otherwise only incomplete job streams are carried forward.
  5. If you set the autolink parameter to OFF, issue the link command from the master domain manager to link the agent and to download the Symphony file to it:
    conman “link workstation?
  6. Change the workstation limit to allow jobs to run on the workstation. For example, set the number of jobs to run concurrently on the workstation to 10:
    conman "limit F235007_00;10"
