Seems like a classic friday w.t.f. question this does.. Shame it's not friday!

But. We want to have a DI server ( therefore enterprise repository ) executing remote jobs on slaves that are configured for a standard database repository.

Unfortunately this doesn't work. the EE PDI cannot execute remote jobs on non EE carte servers. Not sure why... is that intentional? It gives an error saying that the repository is not found. If you connect to the CE database repository then execution on the slaves works fine.

All this because we want a scheduler which we can run on multiple servers and give high availability!

(We're even pondering deploying the BI server, because that can have multiple instances fine, and scheduling our jobs from within that, via an xaction!)
