System Cleanup Program

I don't recall this ever happening in the past; but since we changed the system time for daylight savings this year the cleanup runs at the wrong time. In the past it has always run at 22:00, but now runs at 23:00. The system time is correct. I have also checked the parameters using CHGCLNUP and the time there is 22:00. Any ideas?

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

How did you create the task? When you script a task through WMI you have to state time in UTC so this could be an issue as you don’t state daylight savings time.

    I'm assuming from the command CHGCLNUP that you are have an IBM iSeries. I looked at my own and you're right. Since the time change the command is running an hour later than it should be. I just tried this fix so i won't know if it works until tomorrow. But it won't hurt for you to try this. Go to a command prompt and issue the following commands without prompting for parms: ENDCLNUP CHGCLNUP STRCLNUP Let the next run complete and then check to see what time the clean up jobs ran. If you are using the defaults you can look at the job log of job QSYSSCD in subsystem QCTL. Scroll to the last submit message and press F1 on the message to see what time the job was submitted. Let me know if it works or not. If you have a support contract you can always place a call to get help.

    When you changed the system time did you also change QUTCOFFSET?
