I am want to use VC's Remote Execute to run a batch file that runs on a 64 Bit server. The VC server is 32 bit.
I am attempting to use Visual Cron as occasionally the job hangs, which stops further executions using Windows Task Sheduler.
I was hoping VC would be able to monitor the run time using the timeout options, including setting the "Consider Timeout as an Error" Check box.
I have upgraded to version 4.48.4
The Batch file normally runs in 2 to 2.5 minutes.
I have set the following options in the job (not task) for testing purposes.
Use timeout - checked
set to 1 minute
Consider Timeout as an Error - checked
Notifications on the Job are set on start and on error. Because I've set an unrealistic timeout of one minute, this should error. (I'm running all of this in the test environment ;0) )
The job fires off every two minutes, but completely ignores the "Do not run job if it's running" option, it just fires again.
I am guessing this is because it is a remote exec command. Do I need to install VC on the 64 bit server and run an execute task locally itself to make this work?
