Summary

The Job Scheduler remote update functionality was added to the AWRDE in version 13.02.  You can now easily install and uninstall the AWRDE, including Analyst, on all remote computers from the scheduler node. 

Requirements

AWR_JobScheduler service version 13.02+ must be running on all remote computers.   Remote Update will not work with earlier versions of the Job Scheduler, and will also not work if the service is shut down.  The update can only be initiated from a command line window.

Installing AWRDE Only

On the scheduler node, run the following command to install AWRDE without Analyst on the scheduler node and all compute nodes.

"<Install Location>\AWR_JobSchedulerControl.exe" -controller "local service" -all -admin remote_update_awrde.bat "<New Install Location>" YES -include awrde_<version>_64bit.msi

The above command is used with the remote_update_awrde.bat script.  After downloading the file, you need to rename remote_update_awrde.txt to remote_update_awrde.bat.
