Run a task to initiate a task instance. Running a scheduled task executes a specific tool on specific systems or events.

To run a scheduled task:

  1. From the tool menu, select LogsView All Scheduled Tasks. The All Scheduled Tasks are displayed in the work space.

  2. Select a task from the list, and click [Run Now].

    Note: If the task currently has a task instance running, the [Run Now] button is disabled.

Command Line Interface

Use the mxexec command to execute tools immediately and mxtask command to schedule tasks for later. Perform these tasks from the command line interface (CLI). For assistance with this command, see the HP-UX or Linux manpage by entering man mxexec at the command line or se the Windows command line help. Refer to Getting Started - Using Command Line Interface Commands for more information on how to access the manpage.
