We run ESP on mainframe and agent on Windows.
Can we schedule Windows 2019 Task Scheduler items with ESP and its Windows agent?
Release : 12.0 & 11.4
Component : ESP WORKLOAD AUTOMATION
Scheduling the command (to control the item in Windows Task Scheduler) thru our agent NT_JOB can be done, however ESP only tracks the command, not the process of the item and involved steps.
So extra effort can be needed to make sure all steps complete before the return code is passed to the agent and then ESP. Like creating PowerShell script or other language to track job from script and insure it does not complete until all steps are done.
The better way is;
If you can find the detail about the item, like related script, you can also directly schedule it thru agent wobs (like NT_JOB) without engaging the Windows Task Scheduler. Note: if there are multiple steps/executables in the item, you can schedule one agent wob for every step.
