CA Workload Automation ESP Edition

Issue/Introduction

For the Spring and Fall Daylight savings events, an EVENTSET command is executed to reschedule all the scheduled Events and applications that are waiting for execution to adjust for the 1 hour of daylight schedule time;

 OPER EVENTSET EVENT1 SET BUILDSCHED                          

We will be adding a workload that will be scheduled using a GMT time zone. Should the above or anything be changed? Note: we use SYSZONE(YES) for TIMEZONE as the doc, and GMT doesn't have it.

Environment

Component : CA ESP WORKLOAD AUTOMATION

Release: 11.4 & 12.0

Resolution

JOBs with GMT Time Zones defined do not have daylight savings and will run on their normal schedule time.

The ESP OPER EVENTSET EVENT1 SET BUILDSCHED was required on old versions. That has been corrected with the currently supported ESP Version by adding the SYSZONE(YES) in the initialization parameter.

You can still run the command and it won't hurt, but it's not needed any more. The TIMEZONE with SYSZONE(YES) shifts automatically.
