I need to add Windows Server 2016 Node to Rundeck (which is installed on another Windows Server 2016).

I will be executing PowerShell scripts from Rundeck to this Windows node.

Need to know,
Steps to achieve this
If WinRM will work here to execute PS scripts ?
Or if there is some other way I need to go with considering Community edition.

Please guide.

Rundeck version - rundeck-3.4.4-20210920.war - Installed on Windwos Server 2016

I am trying to add Windows node to Rundeck but resource.xml file is not getting created automatically under folder C:\Rundeck\projects

I tried creating \PROJECTNAME\etc folder under above path and then creating resource.xml file manually but its not working.

I am also seeing files 1.source.xml and cache.xml created under below path and tried updating 1.source.xml with new node information but changes made gets disappeared after few seconds.

Please guide,
Over correct way to add Windows node to this Rundeck which is installed on Windows
Also resources.xml path in above mentioned Rundeck version

Hello Jitendra,

It's mandatory to generate the file following this. And take a look at the resources.xml example.

Also, make sure that your Windows remote node is well configured to receive WinRM connections, please take a look at this.
