    How can define to which GUI Server the Automation API server (emrestsrv) will connect?


    ANSWER:

    In Control-M/Enterprise Manager 9.0.00, 9.0.18, and 9.0.18.100 the Automation API emrestsrv will connect to the 1st GUI Server that the naming service returns.

     - ctm-cli or direct REST API call connects 1st to the WebServer (Tomcat) on https.
       - Then it is reversed proxy to Automation API REST Server (emrestsrv).
       - Then Automation API REST Server would use it's connections to GUIServer and CMS.
