  • You can mount a drive when starting JobScheduler using net.exe.
  • This requires that the JobScheduler starts with administrator privileges.
  • Therefore it is required that the JobScheduler service is assigned an administrator account.

Assign the JobScheduler service an administrator account

  • After the installation the JobScheduler service is assigned the local system account.
  • The name of the JobScheduler service is sos_scheduler_[schedulerId].
  • We assume in the following that the JobScheduler has the Id scheduler.
  • You can use the sc.exe to change the JobScheduler service account.
 sc config sos_scheduler_scheduler obj= domain\domain-admin password= admin-password

Configure the JobScheduler

Please add some lines of code to the script function in the file config/scheduler.xml.
The JobScheduler without administrator privileges doesn't start after you added these lines.

The more complete xml structure of scheduler.xml looks like this:

 <?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
 <?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href="scheduler_documentation.xsl"	?>
 <config mail_xslt_stylesheet="config/scheduler_mail.xsl"
    <security ignore_unknown_hosts="yes">
        <allowed_host host="localhost"   level="all"/>
        <process_class max_processes="30"/>
        <process_class max_processes="10" name="single"/>
    <script language="VBScript">

 				Dim ws, return_code, command
 				command = "net.exe use j: \\tuvix\j"
 				Set ws = CreateObject("")
 				return_code = command, 0, 1 )
 				Set ws = Nothing
 			End Sub
