Yeah, I use GA extensively and have used it to invoke host processes but only on the local host. Should be a piece of cake to use the SSH invoke as well. Nice thing is it can redirect output and email it back to you.

I was more wondering what the "native" IBM replacement was.

It's likely I'll go the GA route but always good to have more than one arrow in the quiver.

Subject: Re: RUNRMTCMD Replacement - Use SSH?

SSH works flawlessly and lets you use public keys instead of embedding

GoAnywhere also works fine, and supports ssh etc.

In the near(?) future, we're going to be decommissioning a couple of old
Windows servers.  We have some jobs that use RUNRMTCMD to invoke processes
on these.

Since Client Access is not an option, my searching turned this up:

Is that the definitive solution?  Use SSH to invoke the remote process?

Any other alternatives anyone has used?  I am considering using GoAnywhere
as it can invoke remote commands on Win/Linux/whatever.
