I ran a test job in base job scheduler on a play ground LPAR, then set the system time back several minutes, simulating the daylight savings time job.
The job will not run twice.
As Larry previously stated, the "next run time" is set for the job, so job will only run once.

Word of caution.
If you have a batch job running across the time change, and that batch job writes time stamps to db records, and the application relies on a date/time order or the db is keyed by date/time, your application could run into issues and/or end up with duplicate records.

Long story short, and best practice, avoid the 1 to 3 window.

Subject: Time change and the Advanced Job Scheduler

Hello again all,

I previously asked a question about the upcoming time change and how it affects automated jobs in the Advanced Job Scheduler. I should have asked this at the time but I wonder also about the default job scheduler (the WRKJOBSCDE one). In the case of the WRKJOBSCDE one, we have a job that runs at 1 am. Is it like the AJS in that it will run once and only once and set it's scheduled next run date after it runs the first time? All input appreciated! Thanks!
