How do I clear running AppManager jobs in the UNIX Agent?
You can clear all running jobs and cached data from the UNIX agent by performing a cold or frozen start.


  • Cold Start
    Restart the UNIX agent using the NqmCfg.xml or NqmCfg_#.xml configuration file stored in the local repository. Restarting the agent with this option preserves modifications you have made to the configuration file and information about running jobs. This option is the equivalent to restarting the Windows agent with the -o option.

    /etc/init.d/nqmdaemon cold
  • Frozen Start
    Restart the agent using the default configuration file created when you installed the agent. If you start the agent with this option, no information about modifications to the configuration file is preserved, nor are any running jobs, events, or data retained. This is equivalent to restarting the Windows agent using the -oa flag.

    /etc/init.d/nqmdaemon frozen

There is a known issue where the frozen or cold start initialization script actions will not function in the NetIQ UNIX Agent 7.1 unless Hotfix 72395 (or the bundle Hotfix 72471 which Supersedes HF 72395) has been applied.
