I'm trying to submit an applescript to an xgrid using the command line. But I've got something wrong with the formatting.

For example this doesn't work. I just get the help screen for xgrid in response.

xgrid -job submit osascript /Users/corey/xgrid/1.scpt 


xgrid -job submit sips -s format jpeg /Users/corey/xgrid/RAW/tif/1.tif --out 1.jpg

What am I missing?

I'm having more success using: xgrid -h localhost -job submit – Corey Riggle Mar 22 '11 at 4:15

I added the -h tag with localhost. I didn't realize this was necessary as I was executing the command on the Controller computer.

xgrid -h localhost -job submit /Users/corey/xgrid/1.scpt

The commands are now being submitted to the Xgrid.
