By definition testing EVERYTHING will take INFINITE TIME. Which I bet is less than optimal (unless your boss is OK with that - then you just found safe job for life :-) So you need to agree with your boss about some metrics to limit and prioritize "everything".

After some fiddling, I was able to remote desktop into the account selenium + tomcat ran as and manually launched a grid job.

Sikuli is deprecated as mentioned on GitHub: A new version of Sikuli(X) is available since 2013 as a follow up development SikuliX seems pretty active when you look at their GitHub.
