Disable schedule jobs on a specific server in a load balanced environment



I need to turn off scheulder jobs at the web front servers.

The classic flag "enableScheduler" could earlier be found in the episerver.config file.

Bur now all config settings are in web.config and I am not sure where to put this value now.

Please help

You actually don't have to do that anymore. EPiServer will keep track of if the job is already started and/or is running, so there won't be any concurrency issues. But I guess there might be cases where you still want to disable them, and that I don't know how to do :(

Oh btw, have you tried enableScheduler="false" on applicationSettings in episerver.config?

episerver.config is gone ... that was the place I first tried.

But where is it now?

Yes, we do not want the web front servers to run the job, only the cms which is not public, and have lots of free cpu to run jobs.

If the file is gone, the config section is still in web.config. configuration > episerver > applicationSettings.

		<applicationSettings enableScheduler="false" />
