Scheduler Job Management

Issue/Introduction

Looking for a workaround solution for when a HOLD SUBMIT command is issued to CA-Scheduler and all job are being placed in "SCHD JOB SUBMISSION FAILURE FROM LIBRARY " is to be able to release/force jobs as needed until we can RELEASE SUBMIT.

 

Environment

Release : 11.0

Component: Scheduler Job Management MVS

Resolution

Use the HOLD ALL / RELEASE USER command instead of HOLD SUBMIT/RELEASE SUBMIT.

Here's how:

1. Execute command HOLD ALL from the console.  Userid will be SCDOPER by default, or your CAIJGEN OPERUID value. 

All schedules will have status HELD BY SCDOPER 

2. Execute command RELEASE USER from the console when ready to resume works.    

All schedules that were held by SCDOPER will be released.

----

To release a job (instead of an entire schedule) after HOLD ALL: 

 1. Release a job.  (CAIJGEN must have RELJOBS=Y. )  

 Schedule's status will show:

Jobs that are not manually released will show HELD BY SCDOPER

2. Execute command RELEASE USER from the console when ready to resume works.

The schedule (GSDELAY in this example) will still have jobs HELD BY SCDOPER.  The only way to release them is to HOLD SCHEDULE N=GSDELAY, and RELEASE the schedule.
