Distributed In-Process Services
To surface updates provided in this hotfix for issue described in 63894
the following applies:
“SAS Distributed In-Process Services Scheduling Server “ is not selected by default as a Scheduler Console action.
The panel will have a combo box of available schedulers, with no default setting so a selection must be made in the combo box.
A login opportunity will be offered.
Although the Scheduler Console is a part of SASMC, they are NOT meant to be used simultaneously.
ie.,actions in SASMC Scheduler Manager Plugin and actions in the concurrently open Scheduler Console.
Whenever a change is made in the SAS Scheduler Manager Plugin, you are required to
Right click Schedule Manager Plugin -> Clear Scheduler Connections which will trigger a refresh of the flow definitions inside of the Scheduler Console.
Without this refresh, behavior can become unpredictable due to the fact the Scheduler Console was not designed for concurrent/simultaneous (seeabove) usage with the Schedule Manager Plugin
