Known Issues

ProductDescription

Helix Control-M

Generation of an SSH key with 3072 bits takes a considerable amount of time, and the following error message is issued:
"... timeout waiting for an answer (polling) for more than 60sec"

The SSH key might still generate successfully. Therefore, wait several minutes and check the list of SSH keys to determine whether the new SSH key appears in the list.

Helix Control-M/Agent

The Agent Installation pane does not contain information or guidance for the installation of an Agent on a Debian operating system.

Workaround: Follow the instructions provided for the Ubuntu operating system.

Helix Control-M/Agent

Control-M Automation API

The Agent upgrade with the provision agent::update API command fails for Agent versions earlier than 9.0.20.280 and for Agents that were upgraded to Agent 9.0.20.280 from an earlier version (see KA 000402673).

To prevent this issue from occurring, use the ctmcfg utility to update the SAASCONF.dat configuration file, as follows:

  • From the command line, run the following command on each machine where an impacted Agent is installed:
    • UNIX/Linux: ctmcfg -TABLE SAASCONF -ACTION UPDATE -PARAMETER SAAS_ENV_TYPE -VALUE prod
    • Windows: ctmcfg -AGENT <instance_name> -TABLE SAASCONF -ACTION UPDATE -PARAMETER SAAS_ENV_TYPE -VALUE prod
