KBEA-00042 - The build suddenly starts using gmake instead of eMake on one cluster host

The build starts to run gmake at some point instead of using Electric Make (eMake). This causes one big job on that cluster host, instead of parallel jobs.


This is most likely caused by the Makefile or a script file invoking gmake or nmake directly (not using $(MAKE) or eMake as the application to invoke. You can either switch to using the MAKE macro, or rename eMake to gmake/nmake and put that executable before the original gmake/nmake.
