(HeartbeatThread) Agent is not startable on this host, it may already
be running: WFAgent[MID-297637996]


Root cause was that the application server was not resolving the host name on the box. This is generally a network DNS configuration issue.
Explicitly defining the instance_id and instance_name is our recommended way to define the servers. It makes it easier to identify the servers in the Admin console visually and also bypasses the need to have the specific IP or DNS defined

Resolving the problem

Set the instance_id and instance_name on both application and process server in the

Explicitly identify the application and process servers with unique instance_id and instance_name values in the file.

Set the instance_id=1000 and instance_name=appserver on the application server
Set the instance_id=2000 and instance_name=procserver on the process server

Then go into the TRIRIGA Admin Console and set the hostnames to match the new instance names given.

Save and restart the agents.
