File Deploy Job - Advanced Options
The Advanced Options panel lets you customize a File Deploy Job using pre-commands and post-commands.
Pre- and post-commands allow you to execute commands on a target directory before a job begins or after a job ends. A pre- or post-command can consist of any number of commands that can be executed by the native operating system of a remote host.
After you define pre- and post-commands, they are saved to the file server as script files. When a job runs, it uses the
nexec -e command to execute the pre- and post-commands. When you execute a pre-command, the target directory is first created (if it does not already exist) and then the pre-command is executed in the target directory. Post-commands are executed in the target directory.
You can create pre- and post-commands by entering commands in the text box or importing text from a file on any managed server.
If necessary, click Zoomto open a dialog box that gives you a larger text box to edit pre- and post-commands. When you finish editing the command, click OK.
Enter the command that you want to execute before the job begins. To import the text of the command, click Browse and navigate to the file containing that text.
Enter the command that you want to execute after the job ends. Postcommands are executed in the target directory. To import the text of the command, click Browseand navigate to the file containing that text.
