Force Target Field Empty Jobs to Run on Specific Instances

In a typical SAP system, we install Additional Application Server(s) which is dedicated for running jobs. To ensure that the jobs are running on this instance, the Target server field should be maintained while scheduling the job. The end users may sometimes forget to define this field or there may be many jobs already defined, with this field empty, before the Additional Application Server (or Dialog Instance) was designed to specifically run reports in background.

You can still make the jobs to run on these Additional Application Servers by creating SAP_DEFAULT_BTC server group in SM61. SAP_DEFAULT_BTC is an implicit group which jobs with empty Target server field run on. By defining this group explicitly and adding the chosen Additional Application Servers to the group, you can force the jobs to run on the required Additional Application Servers.
