VM:Backup High-Speed Disaster Recovery Option (HiDRO)

Issue/Introduction

I noticed that HiDRO has accumulated days and days worth of those HIDRO COMMANDS and HIDRO SYSIN files, from SYBMON, for lots of jobs he’s been neglecting to do while logged off. 

 I went through them, and they’re first, a bunch of backup jobs he never got to do, now obsolete‘cause they’re based on an old view of the directory; plus each day since, the little jobs that doCATALOG CONDENSE and SYBSCR DELETE and $REFRESH and CMD PRTLOG, NOERASE NORPC. Those I think are utilities that should probably run once a piece, even before Hidro gets down to his next real backup job.  

So I thought, maybe I just delete most of those reader files HIDRO got from SYBMON, leaving only one a piece of the maintenance utility jobs. I realize there’s supposed to be a way to tell the system to change the schedule via commands, but how’s that going to  prevent HiDRO  from seeing these reader files as soon as he wakes up, and running these jobs?
So, please advise if I’m doing something 
wrong by just deleting the reader files SYBMON sent to HIDRO to get him to do the jobs we no longer want. 

 

Is that a clean enough way to do it?

Environment

Release : 2.8

Component : CA HiDRO

Resolution

You can view the schedules with the following commands:

SMSG SYBMON $QS  
This will show you all events in the schedule queue.

SMSG SYBMON $QJ *
will show the status of all jobs.
 
To HOLD all schedules use:

SMSG SYBMON $HQ

and then delete the event from today's schedule with:

SMSG SYBMON $DE event [AT hh:mm]

To RELEASE the rest of the events afterwards, use
SMSG SYBMON $RQ
 
In case the event already started you can use
SMSG HIDRO CAN ALL PURGE
 

Additional Information

All of these commands are described in HiDRO's  Operator Guide that you can access at:.
