SNTT – Short agent to change the run on server for scheduled agents

I use this administration agent in my databases to quickly change the “run on” server for all f the scheduled agents when I deploy a template to a new server.

The other approach I use is to have the agent “run on all servers” but to then have each agent check for a configuration document in the database which then lists which servers it is allowed to run on. If the current server is not in the configuration document then the agent exits.

Sub Initialize
        Dim session As New NotesSession
        Dim ws As New notesuiworkspace
        Dim db As NotesDatabase
        Set db = session.CurrentDatabase
        Dim askme As Variant
       
        askme = ws.Prompt (PROMPT_OKCANCELEDIT, _
        “Suggested Server”, _
        ” You must use the format CN=….” ,db.server)
        If Not Isempty (askme) Then
                Forall a In db.Agents
                        If Not a.servername = “” And Not a.servername = “*” Then
                                If a.servername = askme Then
                                        Print a.name + ” already set to run on chosen server”
                                Else
                                        Print “changing ” + a.name + ” from ” + a.servername + ” to ” + askme
                                        a.servername = askme
                                        Call a.save
                                End If
                        End If
                End Forall                
        End If
        End Sub
