DSERIES- SERVER CA Workload Automation DE - System Agent (dSeries)


When scheduling Events, you can specify an absolute past date. For example, you can rerun an Application using a past date such as JAN 1ST 2011. If you specify an absolute past date, the Event triggers immediately, but jobs are selected and variables resolved based on the past date. However, every time you update an Event with an absolute past date, the server triggers the Event immediately.


Release: DSWAHA01300-12-Workload Automation DE-High Availability


To update an Event with an absolute past date without triggering the Event immediately, follow these steps:

  1. Suspend the Event that you want to update.
  2. Make the necessary changes to the Event definition.
  3. Save the Event.
  4. Resume the Event.

When the updated Event is resumed, the server does not trigger the Event immediately.
