Executing a Job on the Server

Previous Next

See Also

If you have very large jobs, you may want to execute them on the server, rather than on a client computer. You can still run the jobs using job definition files, but these must be placed on the server in the <USoft installation directory>\APP directory.

One way to execute a job on the server is to create a Windows batch (.BAT) file which performs the login to the server (maybe using third-party software), and then starts the Batch Runner.

Once the connection has been made, the job can be started in the same way as described in: "Executing a Job on a Client Computer"

Alternatively, you can start Batch Runner on the server itself, in which case you do not need any third-party software.


It is not possible for a job running on the client to start another job on the server by means of the ActionStartJob() action.
