    Hi SME's,

    We have a scheduled job to verify all password daily in the morning . Does it run from all the nodes or just primary node ?  We have a cluster of 3 nodes .

    Regards

    Pankaj Kumar

    Hello Pankaj,

    As far as I have seen in my environment the scheduled jobs are executed from the primary node in the cluster.

    Thanks,

    Reatesh.

    Hi Pankaj, In the latest releases, specifically from 3.3.1 on, all primary site nodes that are NOT in maintenance mode participate in scheduled jobs.

    Hi @Ralf Prigl

    Does it mean a scheduled job is run from all nodes at same time ?  Eg ..4000 accounts needs to verified , We have 3 nodes in cluster , so 12000 accounts are verified at same time ?​​​

    Hi Pankaj, No, of course not. Each node would process about one third of the accounts in the job.

    Hello Pankaj, Yes, this was documented as an enhancement in the 3.3.1 documentation, see e.g. https://techdocs.broadcom.com/us/en/symantec-security-software/identity-security/privileged-access-manager/3-3-1/release-information/new-features-and-enhancements-in-3-31.html#concept.dita_97029b778cfd380e0edca2b1b71f2be6a0289cf2_MultithreadedPasswordRotationforPrimarySiteClusterMembers.
