. Configure the Transfer of the Universal Agent Installation Files and the Installation of the Agents

2.1 Edit the XML Configuration files

Configuring complex XML files with a text editor is often a tedious and error-prone procedure. To get around this, we recommend that you use our XML Editor to manage the configuration files required for the Batch Installer. The XML Editor automatically validates configuration files and therefore reduces the possibility of configuration errors. See the Using the XML Editor chapter below for more detailed information about using the XML Editor. 

  • After downloading the XML Editor, extract the contents of the zip file to a convenient folder (an installation routine is not required) and start the sos.xml.editor.exe program.
  • Use the XML Editor to configure transfer of the Universal Agent installation files:
  • Use the XML Editor to configure the installation of the Universal Agents:
    • Open your batch_installer_config_file.xml configuration file in the XML Editor and assign the scheduler_universal_agent_installations.xsd schema: both files are located in the config/batch_installer folder.
Info
titleHints
  • The  XML Editor is available for Windows.
  • YADE is an Open Source file transfer solution for FTP, SFTP, FTPS, WebDAV and other protocols. Concretely, it will be used here for transferring the following files from the JobScheduler Master to the Agent servers:
    • JobScheduler Universal Agent installation files: jobscheduler_unix_universal_agent.<version>.tar.gz
    • Start script for an Agent instance: jobscheduler_agent_<port>.sh
    • Installation script: jobscheduler_universal_agent_install.sh
  • For more information about YADE, see the YADE product site.

2.2 Configure the JobScheduler Jobs

Once the Job and Job Chain have been extracted to the live folder of your JobScheduler Master carry out the following: 

  • AgentBatchInstaller Job:
    • Set the parameter values for the AgentBatchInstaller job in your JobScheduler Master.
    • Set the installation_definition_file job parameter to the path that points to the Batch Installer configuration file.

3 Installation of the Agents

The Agents can be installed after the XML configuration files and JobScheduler Jobs have been configured. Start a task for the AgentBatchInstaller job as follows:

  1. Open a JobScheduler Operating Center (JOC) browser window for the JobScheduler master.
  2. Go on the "Jobs" Window and open the "batch_installer_universal_agent" folder.
  3. Right click on the job to open the context menu.
  4. Select the Start task immediately operation.
