A Global System Property has been available in the last several Maximo Feature Packs, named mxe.
This added functionality is a response to an APAR (IV79558 - PMWOGEN CRON TASK DOES NOT RESUME SCHEDULE IF DATABASE IS RESTARTED) that was entered for the scenario whereby a client had experienced a server malfunction and subsequently fell behind on scheduled asset maintenance due to the inability to run the crontask for PM Work Order Generation during the database downtime.
1 is the updated functionality; if a crontask is restarted/reloaded, it will not execute immediately for any missed runs; the crontask will execute at the next scheduled frequency.
To view this property and make any updates to the behavior:
