CA Workload Automation System Agent Platform Support Matrix

For information about products and platforms supported by the agent plug-ins, see "Related Topics."
HID_SupportMatrix
The platform support matrix in this topic provides information about the platforms that are supported by different versions of CA Workload Automation System Agent, whether they reside on premise or in the cloud.
For information about products and platforms supported by the agent plug-ins, see "Related Topics."
CA Support Policy
CA provides support for third-party vendor products only when the CA product is supported and the vendor product is supported by the vendor. If a vendor discontinues support for a product, CA no longer supports it.
You can engage CA Support for CA Workload Automation products that:
Best Practice:
The agent is available in both 32-bit and 64-bit versions for most operating systems and platforms. You can run a 32-bit agent on a 64-bit operating system, as long as the 32-bit libraries are installed. The 64-bit version is recommended for installation; however, a 64-bit version can only be installed on a 64-bit operating system.
The native CA WA Agent for Windows 11.3 fully exploits 64-bit technology with optimal performance running on the 64-bit version of the operating system. Earlier releases of the agent running 32-bit mode, while supported, have inherent limitations on 64-bit Windows. We recommend, if running the agent on the Windows 64-bit version of the operating system, that you match the native agent to run in 64-bit mode.
CA Workload Automation System Agent Supported Platforms
See the following platforms for information about operating systems supported by different versions of the agent.
  • The information presented in the following matrix is current for the operating systems that are currently supported by the vendor. Information related to an operating system no longer supported by the vendor is provided for historical purposes only.
  • Unless otherwise specified, the agent supports minor releases and other interim updates of the operating systems listed in the table. For example, for RHEL 7, you can assume the agent supports the following minor versions: 7.1, 7.2, 7.3 and so on.

Notes
4. To install a 32-bit Linux agent on a 64-bit operating system, the following libraries must be installed:
  • libstdc++33-32bit or compat-libstdc++ 32-bit (depending on availability)
  • glibc-2.4 32-bit
5. To install a 31-bit z/Linux agent on a 64-bit operating system, the following libraries must be installed:
  • libstdc++33-31bit or compat-libstdc++ 31-bit (depending on availability)
  • glibc-2.4 31-bit
6. CA WA Agent was built and supported natively on Linux x64.
7. The following library is required: glibc-2.4 31-bit
8. See "Solution Document for RI41118" (Agent for SAP plug-in)
9. CA Workload Automation System Agent 11.3 SP1 was built and supported 64-bit natively on Linux x64.
16. For AE (AutoSys) agents see "Solution Document for RI38228." PIB RI38228 is required only when using CA WA AE r11.3 installer. The stand alone Agent r11.3 installer works fine.
22. CA WA Agent was built and supported natively on Big endian Linux Power8 64 platform.

Notes
1. On AIX 6.1, install the latest fix pack from IBM. See http://www-933.ibm.com/support/fixcentral
10. Native 64-bit support. Agent for SAP plug-in is supported with Solaris 64-bit agent version.
11. All plug-ins except for Agent for SAP are supported, due to unavailable SAP Jco 32-bit.
12. Global zone and non-global whole/sparse root zone configurations are supported.
17. Support also verified on AIX 6.1 System WPAR environment pointing to DE R11.3 Engine.
18. Support also verified on AIX 7.1 System WPAR environment pointing to DE R11.3 Engine
19. For best results, increase the number of threads per process on the HP-UX system; otherwise, the following error can occur when multiple jobs are run simultaneously: java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: unable to create new native thread
To increase the number of threads per process, increase the value of the max_thread_proc parameter on the HP-UX system. We recommend that you set it to 1024.
On HP-UX PA-RISC 11.11, install the latest Java and JRE patches from HP:
20. On HP-UX PA-RISC 11.23, install the latest Java patches from HP: http://ftp.hp.com/pub/softlib/hpuxjava-patchinfo/g-11.23-6.0-1123.1012.html
21. On HP-UX Itanium 11.23, install the latest Java and JRE patches from HP: 
23. For AIX 6.1 and AIX 7.1, the OS must be at Technology Level 1, SP2 or later, or you will see the following error:
Error: Port Library failed to initialize: -125
Error: Could not create the Java Virtual Machine.
26. IBM dropped support for Java 6 in September 2017. Any operating system patch applied after that date may cause the agent to fail to either install or run (or both). See https://developer.ibm.com/javasdk/support/lifecycle/
