Why is the box failing

    We have a team that is having an issue with their box job.  All of the jobs in the box are completing successful, however, when the last job completes the box fails.  Why would the box fail if all of the jobs completed successfully?


    We are currently using CAWAAE 11.3 sp1inc2

    Apparently, there is no reason but in order to diagnose such a behavior, it would be good to look into the 'autorep -J <box> -d' output to see if some abnormal sequence of events happened or any manual sendevent command had been executed.

    Along the 'autorep -J <box> -d' output, we also have to look into the event_demon log to fully understand the sequence of event and the job definitions


    Some other general tips:

    - look into the job definitions for the max_exit_success attribute

    - check if jobs are really in "success"  status and not in "terminate" status


    - we also fixed some problems in this area, like this one:


    - I would suggest to open a case at CA support and upload all the above documentation


    Thanks and regards

    More than likely there’s a box_failure:

    Set at the box level. I have seen users put box failures on globals and jobs outside the box.
