Issue/Introduction

Due to business requirements, you may need to change CA Scheduler's AUTOSCAN time to occur for 1 day only.

Environment

Release : 11.0

Component : SCHDMS

Resolution

Issue the modify command to CA Scheduler to adjust the autoscan time.


F caschd,AUTOSCAN TIME=120+       where 120 is in minutes after the scheduled AUTOSCAN time

F caschd,AUTOSCAN TIME=120-        where 120 is in minutes before the scheduled AUTOSCAN time



Here is an example of the procedure to take before and after the change of time.   

Normal AUTOSCAN time occurs at 8:00 am on 11/21/19

Temporary AUTOSCAN time to occur at 10:40 am on 11/20/19


Display current autoscan time, go to

1  MONITOR   - Control and monitor the current workload          then 

3  COMMAND  - Build a command for CA Scheduler     then    

D2 DISPLAY     then

2  DATE      - Autoscan Information           

This should display the current AUTOSCAN information.


From the system console, issue the command issue 

F caschd,AUTOSCAN TIME=1280-      

A WTOR will be displayed and respond OK

*13 CACM109R SCD1 1280- CHANGE OF  AUTOSCAN REQUESTED, REPLY OK|TERM 


After responding to the WTOR, display the Autoscan information again to confirm the temporary change
