Deployment Jobs


Topic Last Modified: 2010-12-14

Deployment jobs allow you to deploy policy packages to your managed servers.

A deployment job is associated with a package, so to create a deployment job you must have previously created a package by going through the steps in the Creating a Package topic.

To create a deployment job
  1. Click Jobs, located in the Navigation Area under Job Management, to open the Jobs work pane.

  2. Select Deployment Jobs in the Jobs pane.

  3. Click Create. The Deployment Job work pane appears.

  4. Enter a name for the deployment job in the Job Name field.

  5. Select the package you wish to deploy from the Package Name drop-down menu.

  6. Schedule the job for a particular date and time, if desired, by selecting the Schedule job option and setting the date and time. If you leave the Schedule job option cleared, you must manually run the job after you complete the configuration.

  7. Enter the email addresses of anyone who should receive the success or failure notification following the deployment. To add an email address, type the address in the E-mail Recipients field and click Add. Repeat this step to add additional email addresses. For each email address you can choose to Edit, Delete, or Test the address. To change the email address click Edit, make your changes, and then click Update.

    SMTP Server Settings must be configured in the Global Configuration work pane for FPSMC to send notifications. For more information about the SMTP settings, see Configuring Global Configuration Settings
  8. Click Next. The Assign Job work pane appears.

  9. Assign the job by selecting the target servers and/or server groups. Select all managed servers by selecting the Root Group option.

  10. Click Finish to complete the job configuration. The job will immediately be added to the Jobs pane under the Deployment Jobs node.

Once you have created a deployment job you can edit it, copy it, delete it, run it, and check its status.
