Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    Customers on Unix using DS job scheduler.
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    When rescheduling a job, other jobs are removed from the
    schedule.
      On Unix, the code that manages the crontab entries for
    scheduled jobs adds a
      #DSjobDS comment which is use to locate entries. This comment
    includes a
      reference number which until now has been assumed to be quite
    small. If a
      job with a reference number that is a subset of other
    reference numbers is
      rescheduled or unscheduled, then the other matching jobs will
    be unscheduled.
    ****************************************************************
    RECOMMENDATION:
    Apply patch JR35232.
    ****************************************************************
    

Problem conclusion

  • Fixed scheduled job comment reference number matching to be
    more specific,
      matching to the end of the line.
