In an attempt to change the connection types for the Unix and Windows remoteScript tasks (Unix to SSH with SFTP, using key files rather than passwords, Windows to SSH with SFTP_CYGWIN, also using key files), I came across a couple How-To articles discussing the same process:
- Edit the synthetic.xml in ext/
- Add ext/remoteScript and save Unix.py and Windows.py there
After restarting the XL Release server (to apply the changed synthetic) I attempt to create new remoteScript tasks and find based on the stack in the output that it's still attempting to use the old scripts. Wondering if this could just be some sort of compilation error, I replaced Windows.py with a single line, just a "Hello World" print statement. The tasks still fail with a stack indicating that it's trying to use the old scripts.
Has this functionality changed as of Version 4.7.1? I am following the instructions in the How-To articles to a T and yet it does not work as described.
