- The JobScheduler Master and Agent
- are provided for Linux and Windows for all current releases.
- are not provided for AIX, HP-UX and Solaris for current releases.
- The reason is that for Unix platforms other than Linux the effort for maintaining the OS specific code and the required build environment is exceeding the benefits that such platforms provide.
- SOS intends to provide a Java based JobScheduler Universal Agent that can be operated on any platform that supports a JVM.
- Users of Unix platforms other than Linux are provided the following options:
- run a JobScheduler Master on Windows or Linux and run JobScheduler Universal Agents on the desired Unix platform.
- use Agentless Scheduling to execute jobs on the desired Unix platform.
- The development of the JobScheduler Universal Agent will be performed within milestones across a number of releases that provide technical previews of the Agent.
