Reuse executed configuration jobs

May 24, 2018

Configuration jobs allows you to create a set of configuration commands that you can run on one or more managed instances. You can also run the same set of saved configuration jobs after modifying the commands, the parameters, the configuration source, and instances in the job. This is useful when the same set of commands have to be executed on a different instance, or when the job encounters an error and stops further execution.

NetScaler MAS provides a function to execute the completed jobs again. With this function, jobs that are executed completely can be run again without changing the job name.

Note: You can re-execute only those jobs that are executed when the mode of execution is “Now”. 

To edit completed jobs 

  1. From NetScaler MAS home page navigate to Networks > Configuration Jobs.
  2. In Jobs page, select a job that shows the Execution Summary as Completed, and click Edit. You can also edit a scheduled configuration job.
  3. In Configure Job page, you can see that the Job Name and the Instance type are non-editable. You can modify other fields like configuration source, add instances, edit variable values, and set execution settings.
  4. Click Finish to run the configuration job again.

You can also select the job and click Execute again to run the job without modifying any source, instance, and commands. This is useful when you have to run the same set of commands on same instances. Sometimes, the job may encounter a transient error from the server side, and you may have to run the job again.
