    Hello Megalingam,

    Are you after any specific flavor of UNIX?

     

    Please try:

    # grep "CA Workload Automation Agent" /var/.com.zerog.registry.xml

                    <product name="CA Workload Automation Agent R11.3 SP4" id="026e062a-1ed8-11b2-b541-b43c47352144" version="11.3.4.0" copyright="2014" info_url="" support_url="" location="/opt/CA/WA_Agent_R11_3_4" last_modified="2016-03-10 15:10:10">

     

    Cheers,

    Chandru

    You can also use the find command:

    find / -name cybAgent.bin 2> /dev/null

    Hi Mega,

     

    Both Chandru's and Richard's answer are correct and would work in general.  Just a couple of word of caution.  If you are deploying agents manually, i.e copy an existing installation or extract from a tar bundle, it will not be listed in the installanywhere registry file /var/.com.zerog.registry.xml.  Find command will traverse all the directories it has access to.  Therefore you will have to run it as root or with a user id who has system wide read access.

    Chandru / Rick / Pradeep,

     

    Thanks for your responses, the command you have shared was really helpful for our upgrades.
