Editing workstation definitions

About this task

You can manage multiple workstation definitions.

For more information about the main workstation types and their attributes, see the section about workstation definition in the HCL Workload Automation User's Guide and Reference.

To modify a workstation definition in the database and to assign it to a domain, perform the following steps.


  1. From the navigation toolbar, click Administration > Workload Environment Design > List Workstations and select an engine.
  2. Optionally, specify some filtering criteria that help you find the workstation you want to modify. You can also customize th workstation attribute that you want to display in the columns.
  3. Click Display. From the workstation table, select a workstation click Edit to modify its properties or choose another action form the buttons and menu available.
  4. In the Workstations properties panel, specify the attributes for the workstation you are modifying. Depending on the type of workstation you select, some attributes are mandatory.
    Note: For all the details about options and fields displayed in the panels, see the online help by clicking the question mark located at the top-right corner of each panel.
  5. To assign the workstation to an existing domain or to create a new domain, click Assign to Domain.
  6. Click Save.


The workstation definition is now modified in the database.
Note: You can add workstation definitions to the database at any time, but you must run JnextPlan -for 0000 again to be able to run jobs on newly-created workstations. Every time you run JnextPlan all workstations are shut down and restarted.
