Default Multiprocessor Question

I have a pool of operators servicing two multiprocessors (MP). Each MP has 8 processes and they all reference the same dispatcher. When an Operator is dispatched I want him to stay with the MP through all 8 steps (not to be called away) and then unload the flow item and carry it away. Also, step 4 requires 2 operators. So I want a free operator to help him and then go away.

Sounds like I need to write a Task Sequence (TS) to me... so if I build a TS using the <on entry> trigger 1) travel to current 2) utilize operator 3) frload etc..

I don't think the utilize operator is going to work- right...certainly not carry through all 8 steps...and what about another operator for the 4th step ??

any help

Gavin,

Did the model I sent you help? Or do you still need help on this?
