Hi All, We are migrating from an 820 to a new 550 i5 this weekend. Does anyone know how we can migrate the current Job Schedule Entries on the 820 to the 550? Is there an API to the database that holds the Job Schedule Entry details that we can use to extract the info and then push it into the corresponding files on the 550 or is there another easier method? Thanks for any hints or tips :) Rayden.

What file contains job schedule entries for the standard job scheduler (WRKJOBSCDE)?

Answer:

Object QDFTJOBSCD in library QUSRSYS, object type *JOBSCD contains job schedule entries. This object may be restored from a backup.

======================================================

The job scheduler object can be saved and restored. If you’re migrating to a new release, you might choose not to migrate the object itself though.

The List Job Schedule Entries (QWCLSCDE) API can be used to retrieve the entries. The user space can be safely migrated across releases.

The list can be processed on the new system and the entries can be added to the new job scheduler object on that system.

    Save and restore QUSRSYS/QDFTJOBSCD TYPE(*JOBSCD) This will place all of the Job Scheduler entries on the new system. It is a good idea to back up this file on a regular basis.

    If you are using the Advanced Job Scheduler (5769JS1), save/restore library QUSRIJS. I did this as one of the tests when setting up my DR machine. Regards, Phil
