How To Get Agents to Failover Listed In Hostgroup

Discussion created by Harriet_Kim_1764 on Apr 24, 2017
A user has a list of Windows agent listed in a Hostgroup.

Objective:
If a Windows agent goes down, then they want the next available agent to take over.  How to do this?

Solution:
  1. Ensure the 'generate at runtime' is enabled in your job. 
  2. 'Generate at runtime' will evaluate if the agent is active or not at runtime. 
  3. In the Hostgroup (HOSTG), select the mode, 'Next listed'. 

If you have a different method of accomplishing this, please feel free to add your suggestions.  Thank you!
