Robot Job Scheduler
Hi,

Pretty new to AS400 so please bare with me, The company I'm helping out at uses Robot (RBM) to schedule their jobs and I can do the basics like view the jobs, rerun, etc however a user has asked if I can hold off some jobs on Monday (Bank holiday) and run them on Tuesday instead.

When I choose option 1 in RBM (Job Schedule List) I can see this week's jobs but can't scroll right to see next week and hold the jobs.

Is there a way I can do this?

Any help is much appreciated.

Rgds

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Option 1 in Robot shows the days the job is due to run on, so Monday, if today is Wednesday will be next monday.

If this is a temporary change, you can simply remove it for that day and put Monday back on Tuesday. You will have to run the job specially with a DO command to give it an extra run.

    Thanks Adam Just to confirm, if today is Wednesday, when I look under Monday I see a 'C' to show the job completed okay on Monday. If I wait until Friday evening and then enter an 'H' beside the job it wont run over the weekend and I can come back on Tuesday and rerun it. To get it back into the schuller and carry on as normal I enter an 'N' bside the job.

    Jolenton, that would be an R next to the job to release it on Tuesday not an N but a better way is to put a 1 in front of the job to change it and then take the Y off of Monday so it does not run on any Mondays for now. Then on Tuesday just put the Y back in front of Monday on that same screen to reinstate it. This way you do not have to wait until Friday to hold the job. Lovemyi

    Thanks again for the help. Should be okay for the Bank Holiday now. JUst one last question, I can see a number of jobs which have 'Held' under the Sched code column in the Job Schedule List. Naturally I'd assume these jobs are held but they are still running. For example, our 'SAVEALL' job which does out nightly backup says 'HELD' beside it but still runs daily. Does this sound right or has it been setup in a different way. Thanks

    If the job has a + next to the job type then it means that job is part of a group. Put a 1 in front of it and press enter then press F10 to see the group membership information. It will show you the group that it belongs to and even if the job is HOLD in front, if it is part of a group it will still run in that group. You need to go to the group job and hold that member of that group by drilling down through the group with a 1 and then F10 several times to see all the members in that group and there you can hold a member so it will not run as part of the group.

    Jglenton, Lovemyi has a great tip. You should know that once you find out what the Group name is you can change the search option while viewing the job schedule list from 'Job name' to 'Group with members'. This will give you a clear view of how the jobs are running within the group, including the job you are concerned about. Regarding your original question about the jobs a user doesn't want to run on a Bank Holiday.... From the Scheduling Objects menu you should have a Calendar Object created with these Bank Holidays. In this case you will also want to make sure you have 'N' set under Sat. and Sun for the Working Days of the week. Then, if all these jobs are under a group you should go back to the job schedule list and take the option for Exception Scheduling. For 'Run on non-working days' enter an 'F' (Run after). If they are not members of a group, then will have to do this for each job. From now on these jobs will no longer run on Bank Holidays, they will run the day after. Hope this helps.
