Associating the operating system scheduling server with a spawner definition

  1. In SAS Management Console, right-click the object spawner defined in Server Manager and select Properties.
  2. In the Spawner Properties dialog box, select the Servers tab.
  3. From the Available Servers list, select the operating system scheduling server and move it to the Selected Servers list.
  4. Click OK.
  5. Restart the services for the object spawner eg through services.msc on the OS.

It might also be nessessary to allow inbound connections in OS firewall on port 8451 (this port might be different on your SAS-system).
