Unfortunately this thread has left us with a combination of yes, no, and
There is a big difference (imho) in how the system keeps time & handles time
zones, and how the schedulers are programmed to function.
This doc explains it better than I can... note there are differences between
native job scheduler (wrkjobscde) & Advanced Job Scheduler (wrkjobjs)
read the whole doc.. but especially question 6. Even though this doc
originated years ago, last update was last Friday..
In pre-Y2k days I discussed this issue w/one of the developers (at Common)
who maintained the native job scheduler, and he did insist the process would
never run a job twice because the record is tagged with last execution date
and would not run the same date twice (native job schedule cannot schedule
one entry to run multiple times in a day like the advanced scheduler.
Note that this doc does not reference i Navigator & it's schedule functions
or Management Central (whether they are different or not)

Subject: RE: Annual Time Change Question
I was thinking of NEP that wakes up every day at 2:30am. But then I did not
carefully think this out. Spring Ahead, 2:30 never happens and Fall Back
2:30 only happens once. I wonder if the job would just sit waiting or if
the UTC thing comes into play and it run at 3:30.
I love left field, back to reading and holding off on those quick replies.
