Post Remote job exit code: -1 Reply with quote

Hello,

I have upgraded to version 2.3.6 and I have started to recieve the following error condition on a job chain:

(1) Semaphore file 0003100030.24x7 found
(2) Job started
(3) Agent ADP1 contacted
(4) Remote job posted for execution
(5) Remote job exit code: -1 ------ This is the error job did not run
(6) Connection to ADP closed

If I remove the what for a particular file to exist and say run now the job
runs fine. The first job in the chain is remote, the second job is local to the master server and the third job is remote. The last one is the job with this error but it appears to be a problem with any remote job that keys off a file.
If I change them to a time or manual the jobs execute correctly.

John

1. Any messages in the scheduler log on the agent side? If yes, what they say?

2. What happens when you run this job synchronously (vs. asynchronously)?

1. There are no messages on the agent side.

2. If I make the job synchronous the job runs. But the problem with that is the fact that if I run it that way it will tie up the server for an hour since it's doing a 700 MB database import and I need other jobs to execute at the same time on other agents.

Here is what you can do as a workaround:
Make this job synchronous and having "no schedule". Create another asynchronous job instead. That replacement job - the second job will run the first job in a separate instance of 24x7 using the following DOS command "24x7 /JOB[first job id or name here]". Note that the first/original job will be synchronous and the main instance of the scheduler will not be blocked and will be available for other jobs and the agent will be also available for connection/processing submited by other 24x7 schedulers and agents while processing your 700MB import.

Yes, that does work.

Could you please explain to me why this job and other async jobs appear to have this type of problem? I just want to know because I want increase my understanding of things and why they work the way they do.

Since this is no longer a real problem just a quest for knowledge there is no rush on providing me with this information.

Thank You for Your Time.

Does it happen with any async job, even as simple as launch the Notepad?
What all these jobs have in common?

: Yes, that does work.
