    Hi All,


    I am looking to set up a machine container in Autosys to look like the below example:








    The way i am currently controlling these machine is to send 2,3 & 4 Offline and leave 1 Online. Then if 1 goes Offline then i will send 2 Online and the batch will run on that machine. 


    Is it possible to leave all machines inside of a container Online but specify a machine priority? For example if i leave all machines Online then the batch will automatically target Machine_Name1 but if 1 goes Offline then the batch will automatically target machine 2 and so on. 


    Sorry if this is a silly question, i'm still only a beginner! 


    Thank you in advance!

    You need to insert separate real machines and add them to a virtual machine as below:


    insert_machine: realmach1
    type: a
    insert_machine: realmach2
    type: a
    insert_machine: virtmach
    type: v
    machine: realmach1
    machine: realmach2


    You could use the virtual machine name in the job definition for machine attribute.

    You can control the order in which machines are chosen using the load balancing attributes (e.g. factor).

    By doing that you should not have to keep machines offline and manually bring them online later.

    If a machine goes offline or is overloaded (per your settings), then the workload will automatically be directed at the next prioritized available machine.
