[SOLVED] How do I turn off the Scheduler permanently?

I have a Development box where I want the routines to have scheduling information, but I want the scheduler permanently turned off and set to not come on when the machine restarts. How do I do that?

This is I-Way version 8 by the way.

If its windoze, then then remove it from the services, and if its Unix/Linux, remove its from the bootup tasks

I don't want to turn off the entire I-Way service because I want to work in it. I just don't want it pinging systems for data because it's the Dev version.

I have turned off the following switch -- sched_autostart (scanning) -- which is accessed via the server console, Workspace Tab -> Special Services and Listeners -> Scheduler -> right-click and select Properties.

This doesn't turn off the server, but turns off the "scanner" which is the part of the scheduler that looks for jobs to run. So the scheduler is running but it doesn't look for files to run. That seems to be the behavior I'm looking for even if it's a little non-intuitive. I'm happy.

I guess scheduler is different in iWay to WebfOCUS ??

I was thinking about Report caster.

Setting the autostart of not should do the trick.

Another option would be to remove/comment the SCHED_DEFAULT block in edaserve.cfg

Assuming you are talking about the DataMigrator schedule then as ad administrator from the DCM go to Workspace > Special services and listeners > SCHEDULER; right click and select properties. Change the value of sched_autostart from y to n.

Keep in mind that the scheduler is also used for restarting flows, parallel groups, etc.
