Hello everybody,

I have a short question at a behaviour I had never seen before at the

Every night we submit some scheduled jobs to save data to different tapes.

They all have the same job priority, they all have the same date and time
scheduled. But they did not appear at the JOBQ in the order they were

The list looks like this:

Job     User    Number  Priority        State
TAP01   SYSOPR  545668     5            SCD
QTAPE7  SYSOPR  545671     5            SCD
TAP02   SYSOPR  545670     5            SCD
QTAPE6  SYSOPR  545672     5            SCD

As you can see the job-numbers are not sorted. The job schedulings are all
the same, but the order should have been 545668, 545670, 545671 and 545672.

The only way to get this fixed (to get it in the right order) is to change
the starting times of the jobs corresponding to the wanted sorting.

We never tried out to let this list be unchanged and see what happens,
because the correct sorting is essential for us.

Has anyone seen this before and is there a PTF available to get this fixed?
