Not only does JAMS have the ability to convert objects from Windows Task Scheduler and SQL Agents, but it can also convert CRON jobs from Linux and UNIX installations. This feature provides an easy method of migrating all existing CRON jobs from various Linux and Unix flavors into JAMS for a single point of management. The two things needed are:
- An export of the Crontab
- (Note: Be sure to remove all comments from the Crontab.)
- Cron2JAMS.exe. The free Unix Cron job converter tool for JAMS is available for both JAMS V6.X and JAMS V7.X. Get it for your JAMS version at the link below.
