Locating the BJS Build Number
In the Startup Message: The BJS version and build are in the BJS service
startup message in the Application Event log. Stop and restart the BJS
service and then open the application event log and find the startup
In the Job Log Header: An alternate way to find the BJS version and
build is to open BJS Administrator, connect to BJS on the computer where
the BJS service is running. Then double-click on a job appearing in the
Active Job List. This appears right after you connect. The job log for
the job will appear on the screen. The BJS version and build are in the
job log header.
Limitations of the Microsoft Operating Systems
Technical problems experienced are not always caused by BJS. These
problems can be caused by limitations or the design of the Microsoft
Windows operating systems. For those with BJS technical support,
Camellia Software staff will work to discover if this is the case.
Regarding Windows 2012 original release build 9200, BJS has full functionality. Some users have reported limited BJS function with Windows 2012 R2 build 9600. These BJS users have reverted to Windows 2012 original release build 9200, and then reported BJS is fully functional.
Our experienced, senior level staff has extensive experience with
Windows. Our knowledge of the Windows operating systems is based on
publicly available information from Microsoft and their corporate
website. Camellia Software does not represent Microsoft. We are third
party software developers for the Windows operating systems.
If it is determined that a problem originates from a Microsoft product,
you will be asked to open a support incident with Microsoft. We will be
happy to work with you and Microsoft to resolve the incident. If an
incident is opened, please let us know how it resolves.
Saving work from evaluation copy to licensed copy or for other server migration.
The temporary copy of Batch Job Server (BJS) is fully-functional. Email
Camellia Software for installation information. The difference between
the evaluation copy and the licensed copy is that the evalution copy
needs a password each month to keep it running. The evaluation copy has
a capacity for up to 30 usernames. The license you purchase will be
limited to the number of usernames you purchase.
Once full payment is received, you receive the licensed copy. Please
download it from internet, according to the directions that will be
emailed to you.
Then, in order to insure that previously defined jobs are saved when
upgrading a license from the evaluation copy to the licensed copy, you
need to back up several files. This information is provided via email in
your evaluation password email reply from Camellia Software. Please
contact Camellia Software via email with your request if you need it
If you need a price quote in a WORD document for your impending order,

type of server must be licensed. Full pricing is published on the
pricing page of this website.
