Scheduler Job Management

Issue/Introduction

Attempt to bring up a standalone Scheduler (LPAR lpar2) that is in a sysplex with another LPAR (lpar1).  These LPARs do not shared a JES2 spool.  Get error message: 

CACM346R WAITING FOR SCHEDULER MASTER ENQ, REPLY "END" TO SHUT DOWN, "CONT" TO CONTINUE AS NON-MASTER

Replying CONT causes Scheduler to run jobs in the schedules defined on LPAR lpar1.

 

Environment

Release : 11.0

Component: Scheduler Job Management MVS

Cause

The same SUBSYS id is used for both Schedulers.

Resolution

1. Use a unique SUBSYS id for Scheduler on lpar2.  Example: SUBSYS=SCH2.  SUBSYS option is on the CAS9 MAIN command.

2. Ensure that XCFGROUP is set to blank.  XCFGROUP option is on the CAS9 CAIJGEN command.

3. Add the following DD statement to the Scheduler started task job, logon clist, CAJUTIL0, and CAJUCMD0 proc on lpar2: 

//$$SCH2 DD DUMMY
