    What are the basic steps in the WebAdmin operation flow once a job is submitted by the operator?


    The following basic steps can be useful when troubleshooting WebAdmin and trying to determine where it is failing.

    1. submit job and the webadmin perl cgi scripts generate a task file (wa-task* file)
    2. upload file (for imports)
    3. webadmind (the WebAdmin back end)  picks up the task file, extracts the task information, and creates a "wrapper" script to run (wa-cmd* shell script)
    4. wrapper script runs
    5. job writes output
    6. output emailed to user
    7. task file and wrapper script are deleted
    8. email delivered
