Goldengate: "agctl Start" Starts Duplicate JAgent When "AUTOSTART JAgent" In Mgr.prm (Doc ID 1587175.1)

Last updated on JULY 17, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle GoldenGate - Version 11.2.1.0.7 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

 We have recently started to use agctl to start/stop GG.  We have "AUTOSTART JAgent" and "AUTORESTART JAgent" included in our mgr.prm. With "start mgr" issued via ggsci, GG only starts JAgent if it is not
already running. This is desired behaviour.

However, if we start GG via agctl, then an additional JAgent gets started with these parms in the mgr.prm. This is not desired behaviour as the original JAgent stops working due to port conflicts.
