Re:Batch UCF Jobs

Discussion created by ca.portal.admin on Sep 19, 2008
We use RHDCUCFB batch jobs to vary files to update or retrieval mode.
They must be ran single threaded since these jobs signon to CV with the
same userid. Is there a way to make the job have a bad return code if
they are ran at the same time. I don't want to allow multiple signons so
I can't use that unless there is a way to allow multiple signons by
userid. I am running 16.0 SP4 on z/OS 1.9.

Thanks,
Steve

Re: Batch UCF Jobs
"Steve, if your job scheduler doesn't handle this for you, one way you
could do this is to allocate the same file with a ""DISP=3DOLD"" in each =
job
you want to single thread. That way, the second through nth jobs will
enqueue on the file and only one of the jobs will execute at a time.

Not exactly ""high tech"" but it works.
