Currently, our organization runs various ArcPy python scripts as Windows Scheduled Tasks from a workstation. But I know some people prefer to run these from a server machine. I am hoping to get some clarification on this issue. So below are some questions:
1. What software needs to be installed on a workstation or server to run ArcPy python scripts as a scheduled task?
1a. Does ArcGIS Desktop or ArcGIS Pro need to be installed?
2b. Or does only the ArcGIS 10.x Python installation need to be present?
2. If you run a Python script scheduled task on a server that has the ArcGIS 10.x Python installed, but not ArcGIS Desktop/Pro, are you limited with what functions you can run? (i.e., you can't run processes that required Standard or Advanced license).
3. What are the advantages/disadvantages of running the scheduled tasks from a workstation or a server?
Thanks everyone! Hopefully other Esri users find the discussion for this question helpful.
