  • Hi Yogesh,

    Can we schedule the jobs directly from SOLMAN_SETUP with user SOLMAN_ADMIN?

    (or) Below should be followed.


    You have created a user to schedule jobs for background processing. For more information, see USER_SOLMAN_BTC.

    Thanks in advance


  • Thanks for the reply.

    SOLMAN_BTC is already exist in system.

    If we schedule the planned jobs from SOLMAN_SEUP , Can they get scheduled with SOLMAN_BTC automatically ?..I did the same..but they are scheduled with how to correct them?

    Thanks in advance


    • The one configured with Solman_admin you can leave them as it is and program will configure jobs automatically when its needed with solman_btc (during configuration wizard)

  • Yogesh,

    My sincere and deepest thank-you for these most excellent, thorough, easy to follow, 12 part, step by step, configuration instructions. You have helped me get a new Solution Manager 7.2 installation up and running in record time and for that, I am eternally grateful.

    "Thank-you" seems far too small a phrase to express how much you have helped me but it is all that I can say.

    Thank-you. Truly. Thank-you.

    Deb Nugent.

  • Hello,
    Your contribution is excellent, it is very much appreciated, but I would like to consult about the basic configuration of solman, I did the whole process in a 000 client, I would appreciate clarifying if that is correct or should I do it in a 400 client, or at what level of the configuration should I change of client to leave it working in a productive environment.
    best regards
