    hi, 


    i am using distribution method to distribute packages to a filtered group of robots.

    I have to manually run it through the distribution console. The scheduling is also just ONE time scheduling.

    I want to have a interval scheduling to run the task on distribution.


    I notice that PU command on distsrv have an option to start the task "TASK_START"

    However, i am having difficulty on the parameters that it's asking.


    Please help to explain the parameters that is equal to "right click, start task" action.


    i am running UIM 9.20

    distsrv 9.20


    The following parameter was asked.

    task_start PDS_PCH 30 name,complete%d,at%dupdate%d

    Anyone tried to use this method to start the task? I logged a ticket to CA and they redirected me to community instead.
