Restrict bacground jobs to run in a particular server, HOW?

Shalesh Singh Visen || 05 Sep 2009 6:36 am || 3


What is your solution for the above with out hard coding the target server where the background job should run?

The exact requirement is a background job can run in all other SAP instances (A, B, C) except for one instance (D). This instance (D)somehow still must have a btc work process.

Thanks in advance for your inputs

    I have 2 options in this regard, but the selection depends on my customer requirement.

    1) You may use the following profile parameter in default profile where you mention the list of the application servers where the background jobs need to be processed.

    rdisp/btcname = svr1, svr2, ....

    2) You can create a server group in SM61 with the name 'SAP_DEFAULT_BTC' and assign the desired app servers. The background jobsare only executed on any server that is included in the server group 'SAP_DEFAULT_BTC'.
    Note that the 'SAP_DEFAULT_BTC' server group is analyzed at the start time of a job, but not at the definition time. This applies in general to background processing server groups.
