Disabling parallel run of background job

Hi All

I have an ECC6.0 system in load balancing mode with cluster environment. The problem is that we have a program which runs in background. The same is specified to run on App1 server. However, in case the no. of bkd processes are less in App1 servers, it schedules the remaining jobs on to App Server 2 which is not desired.


I have a process which activates 8 bkgd jobs on App1

App1 only has 5 bkgd processes free

The remaining 3 jobs will get scheduled on App2, which is not desired.

Please let me know how can i restrict a background process to run only on a single server.

    If you define/change a job you can give a background server, however, if you give a fixed instance name and that instance is down the job won´t run at all.

    You may be able to use an external scheduling software for this, e. g. Redwood Cronacle - which is free for Netweaver customers.
