Known Issues
Connecting to ESP dSeries Workload Automation server 12.3 from a desktop client prior to 12.3
  • In the Admin perspective, the permission related pages will appear improperly, if any user has newly introduced permissions like AGENT GROUP.
  • The output of the newly introduced commands like GETSPOOLFILE may be inappropriate
Desktop Client Default Resolution Issue on Windows Pro 10
On Windows Pro 10, Icons and Palettes in the Desktop Client appear very small. This seems to be an issue with the default resolution of the computers.
  1. Right click on the DC executable.
  2. Go to
    Properties > Compatibility > Change High DPI Settings > Override high DPI scaling behavior
    .
  3. From
    Scaling performed by
    , select System.
Recommended resolution for Windows Operating System is 1920x1080.
Fixed Issues
  • For the File Trigger job, when searching a file, if the Recursive checkbox was unselected, the desktop client still performed a recursive operation and traversed to subdirectories. This issue is now resolved.
  • In the Desktop Client, the Find Job functionality was unable to highlight the selected job. This issue is now resolved.
  • When the variable is enclosed within the braces, such as %(var_AGENT13), then the value is getting resolved. However, when the variable was used without braces, such as %VAR_AGENT13, then the value was not getting resolved as expected. This issue is now resolved.
  • When a large number of users subscribe to the filter criteria using filter by "application name" or "all", to get all the completed records, the server used to take a considerable amount of time. This time increased even further when the number of records in the ESP_WSS_APPL table increased. Any actions performed on the active generations such as resubmit, insert within the above interval of time, use to lag until all the completed records were fetched by the server. These issues are now resolved.
    Note
    : To achieve even more better performance,  add
    disable.create.destroy.semaphore=true
    to
    <server_install_dir>\conf\server.properties
    .
  • When defining an agent user, the User ID value is case-insensitive for Windows.
