Problem summary

    * USERS AFFECTED:  Users of WebSphere Extended Deployment      *
    *                  Compute                                     *
    *                  Grid 8.0 and the batch function             *
    *                  of WebSphere Application Server 8.5.        *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: Start time of the top level job is      *
    *                      null.                                   *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    When a top level job is submitted the start time of that job was
    never updated in the JobStatus table.  So it was
    left as an empty or null value.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The reason this was occurring was the code was not looking for
    the insetup state.  The insetup state is a state that
    the top level job would enter before going into the executing
    state.  The code was changed so that it checks for
    both state changes to cover the top level job and the subjobs.
