Q. If I use the scheduling parameters (SCDDATE and SCDTIME) on the SBMJOB command, and the system is down during the scheduled time (power failure, IPL, etc), will the job automatically run when the system comes up?
I know there is a RCYACN parm on the job scheduler’s ADDJOBSCDE command to handle this type of situation, but this parameter isn’t on the SBMJOB command, so I wasn’t sure if it just doesn’t run at all or if it will be submitted immediately.
A. The job will be submitted when the system recovers. The default for the ADDJOBSCDE command is RCYACN(*SBMRLS); the SBMJOB command emulates this default action.
