At your Disaster Recover exercise, you need to manually control the jobs/events that run. You do not code CLASS in the event definition and understand that EVENT prefixes will be used as the default CLASS. How do you release specific events while keeping all other groups on hold?
Use the following procedure:
(Note - TEST is used here as an example of a group prefix. You will need to supply your own group prefix name.)
- First, you need to hold/suspend all classes as follows:
OPER CLASS - SUSPEND/HOLD
- When you are ready to release a specific class, you want to exempt it from the hold/suspend:
OPER CLASS TEST EXEMPT
All events in this class, group TEST, will now be ready to trigger.
- When you are ready to run your schedules, you will need to release/resume all classes (group prefixes) as follows:
OPER CLASS - RESUME/RELEASE
- You will want to unexempt the class that you previously exempted. If you do not do this step, it causes no impact but we recommend you unexempt as follows:
OPER CLASS TEST DEEXEMPT
