    Hi Elke,

     

    Sorry I forgot that, this is related to Autosys and we are using CA workload Control center 11.3 version application.

     

    Regards,

    Om

    Hello Om,

     

    RESTRICT_FORCE_STARTJOB is an WAAE instance-level setting/variable that tells the Scheduler to restrict running multiple instances of a job while the job is in STARTING, RUNNING, WAIT_REPLY (i5/OS) or SUSPENDED statuses. It affects jobs and boxes alike.

    Could you please clarify how you added this variable in a cmd job? Did you use the envvars attribute? If yes, then that is not how this variable is to be set. 

     

    If you'd want RESTRICT_FORCE_STARTJOB to be set, then append the following line to either the $AUTOUSER/autosys.sh.`hostname` profile file or to the /etc/init.d/waae_sched.$AUTOSERV script, and restart the Scheduler service (unicycle waae_sched.$AUTOSERV).

     

    RESTRICT_FORCE_STARTJOB=1; export RESTRICT_FORCE_STARTJOB

     

    I hope it helps.

     

    Cheers,

    Chandru

    Thank you Chandru for your response,

    I have set the RESTRICT_FORCE_STARTJOB=1 to the profile attribute.

    My sample Jil file :

     

    insert_job: XXXXXXX.AUTO_CHECK job_type: cmd
    machine: XXXXXXX
    owner: omk
    max_run_alarm: 0
    alarm_if_fail: y
    avg_runtime: 90508
    date_conditions: y
    timezone: GMT
    days_of_week: su,mo,tu,we,th,fr,sa
    start_times: "09:00"
    profile: RESTRICT_FORCE_STARTJOB=1
    std_out_file: /opt/CA/WorkloadAutomationAE/logs/agent_test.out
    std_err_file: /opt/CA/WorkloadAutomationAE/logs/agent_test.err
    command: /home/scripts/om.sh

    That's incorrect use of the variable. Please see previous response for the correct implementation procedure.

    I have one question, Is this utility would work in 11.3 version?

    Yes the varaiable RESTRICT_FORCE_STARTJOB works in the 11.3 version also.

    Hi Om Knaugo,

     

    Just want to reiterate the following.

     

    1. The RESTRICT_FORCE_STARTJOB  is not a attribute which can be set in the Job definition

    2. The RESTRICT_FORCE_STARTJOB  is an environment variable which needs to be set in a profile script of the user who starts the scheduler service. It can also be added to the $AUTOUSER/machine name scripts as mentioned above which are called into the user profile. The idea is that the environment needs to be set when the service is started.

    3. The RESTRICT_FORCE_STARTJOB  is a global setting for all the jobs in the autosys instance and is not specific to a particular job.

    4. The RESTRICT_FORCE_STARTJOB  prevents the jobs being force started when the previous run has not yet completed.

    use eem to restrict it at the job level per user
