Update Server Properties Job - General

The General panel lets you provide basic information that identifies an Update Server Properties Job.

Field definitions

Name

Identifying name.

Description

Optional descriptive text.

Save in

Folder in which to store the object.

Date types updated

Check any of the following:

  • Update Server Properties — Updates properties on target servers.
  • Update Configuration Objects Registration — Registers any configuration objects defined in the Configuration Object Dictionary that are not currently registered on target servers.

    An Update Server Properties Job always updates the status of a target server's RSCD agent.

Number of targets to process in parallel

Choose one of the following options:

  • Unlimited — Simultaneously runs the job on as many servers as possible. Application Server settings control the number of targets the job can access.
  • Limited — Specifies the maximum number of targets on which the job can run simultaneously. Limiting the number of targets is useful when a job might temporarily disrupt the functionality of a target server, and you want to limit that disruption to a small fraction of your managed servers.
    If you want the job processed serially at the target servers, set this value to 1. Note, however, that although this is the best approach for achieving serial processing, it does not always guarantee full serial processing at all targets; the first two or three targets might still run in parallel.

Set execution override

Select if this job should always execute as if your current role and user are scheduling the job. After you click this option, the job definition shows the role:user combination under which the job executes.

Clear execution override

Remove an existing execution override.
