    I have a job that runs in about 20 minutes most days. A couple times a week it runs longer and I would like to set it up for the successor job to go ahead and begin execution at a certain time even though my job is still running. I am fairly new to the Workload Manager so any help would be appreciated.

    In ESP, you can add abandon predecessors at a specific time, like this:

    ABANDON DEPENDENCIES 22:00

     

    Also, you could consider using a task that was use AJ (AppleJob) command to READY the job at a specific time.  That would be more of a "nuclear" option.
