Re: Service Director



fixed

That is exactly what GO SERVICE shows.

Thus, my original question as far as what >might< have happened. I have no
idea if the anti-social person (just how antisocial can somebody be to
their own boss and STILL have a job) got a bill for service director and
cancelled it, or if he jst got into a snit. Why the library is gone, but
the scheduled job remains.


Oh wait - this just hit me. Maybe at an earlier release - v4r5 or earlier,
service director was an added thing, like TCP/IP was back in the v2 days,
and later it was put into the OS and thus the job schedule entry is
vestigal from ancient days. Does that make sense?

there is job scheduler entry on our system (v5r4m0) named AUTOPTF.

It is set to run on Mondays at 01:00:00.

The command is CALL PGM(SVCDRCTR/AUTOPTF).

That library does not exist, and, therefore the job submission fails.

The person who formerly tended to things, has never communicated to
others,
even to our mutual boss what he did or why.

Can anybody tell me if Service Director was abandoned and while the
library
was removed the scheduled job just slipped through?

Or, is that a separate maintenance thing, with the same result that it was
removed but job scheduler entry remained?

I am not eager to remove things without a good reason. This doesn't cause
harm, but appears to be useless. I can't get any answers here.
