RunJob is a simple batch controller for FIM and its predecessors and is used to initiate the execution of FIM Run Profiles, validate the results of Run Profiles, and integrate into additional batched processes by executing external applications.


RunJob is a command line tool that takes an XML based “task” file containing command sequences for a FIM solution and executes them, interacting with FIM to initiate and monitor Run Profiles, and providing mechanisms for calling out to additional tools as needed as part of the Run Sequence (for example, to transmit files generated by FIM to a target server for consumption).

In addition to its execution capability RunJob contains an internal operation sequencer, allowing sections of a Run Sequence to be repeated, included, skipped or completely halted based on the results of the Script as it is executed in real time.

Intended Audience

This tool is intended for FIM solutions that require a batch mechanism in order to control the execution of FIM Run Profiles, and is ideally suited to deploying in environments where sequences of Run Profiles need to be deployed and modified in real time without access to development or scripting expertise.
