Before You Begin

  1. Make sure that Robot Schedule has been successfully moved prior to starting this process.  See Moving Robot Schedule to a Different System for more information.
  2. Install Robot Schedule Enterprise on your new system. Agent Command Sets, Environments, Return Codes and Event Monitoring will show up in the Robot Schedule GUI once Robot Schedule Enterprise is installed. The Agent information resides in Robot Schedule files. They will already exist if you successfully moved Robot Schedule. 

Point Agents to New Enterprise Server

After Schedule Enterprise has been installed on the new system, your existing Agents can be changed to point to the new system.

Windows Agents

  1. Open the Robot Schedule Agent Manager.
  2. Select your agent and click Edit. (The Agent must be inactive to edit. Stop the Agent if necessary.)
  3. Change the Enterprise Server Settings to point to your new system IP address.

Linux/Unix/AIX Agents

Use the ./switch.sh command. 

This command instructs the Agent to switch to a different Schedule Enterprise server by modifying the configuration information, including the name of the Agent xml config file, server address, and port information.

What and where to change will depend on your environment.

Example for single Agent:

./switch.sh xx.xx.xx.xx:7472

Where:

  • xx.xx.xx.xx is the IP address of the Enterprise Server.
  • 7472 is the Enterprise Server port (this is the default port).

Example for multiple Agents in the same directory:

./switch.sh -f myenv.xml xx.xx.xx.xx:7472

Where:

  • -f myenv.xml specifies the Agent xml config file to update if you are not using the default (agent.xml).
  • xx.xx.xx.xx is the IP address of the Enterprise Server.
  • 7472 is the Enterprise Server port (this is the default port).
