I just want to confirm can we import our Job definitions in Autosys DB without importing the Machine details first.
In dSeries there was import/export utility by which we can import the schedules with the respective calendars from old environment to new envt. However, later on i needed to create/add/import respective calendars also.
My requirement is simple i want to know all the possible ways to import/export the Job Definitions of Autosys from old envt. to new envt. where in i dont want to import or define the machine definitions.
you cant define a job without its machine definition..so to answer your question, you cant load a jil file that contains job definitions without loading the machine definitions first.
Prior to R11. it would have been possible. However as was pointed out you cannot have a job without a machine/AutoSys Virtual machine.
you also need to account for Resources , Calendars and global variables.
AutoSys is NOT a 1:1 to any other scheduler out there.. it's gotten close But it is still a unique product that does the job far better than others.
just my 3 cents
Thank you for information daddepalli scarrobis
