TWS Improvement on current behaviour:
Ambiguity for jobs scheduled when Daylight Saving Time switches off
"If a job stream or a job run on a timezone where the Daylight Saving Time
(DST) switches off, that is the clock is put one hour back, and if you define
a time dependency for such job streams or jobs in relation to another
timezone, it might happen that this time dependency occurs during the
second, repeated time interval. In this case the time dependency would be
resolved during the first time interval.
Now Tivoli Workload Scheduler recognizes that the time dependency
occurs on the second, repeated time interval and resolves it accordingly.
No user action is required to activate this behaviour"
TWS Every job is now Daylight Saving Time aware:
"If the EVERY keyword is defined for a job when the Daylight Saving Time
switches off, that is the clock is put one hour back, the job does not run
during the second, repeated time interval.
Now the command EVERY JOB is DST aware and it runs also during the
second, repeated time interval. No user action is required to activate this behaviour."
