Specifies the recovery action to be taken if the job cannot be submitted
at the designated time because the system is powered down or in
restricted state. The action specified on the parameter occurs at the

Jobs submitted during IPL or when the system comes out of restricted
state are submitted in the same order that they would have been had the
jobs been submitted at the times specified in the job schedule entries.
If multiple occurrences of a recurring job are missed, the job is
submitted only once. The first missed occurrence of the job is
calculated from the current date.

Since the scheduler portion of IPL need not be complete for the IPL of
the system to be complete, other jobs may start on the system before all
of the jobs have been submitted.

not affected.

Subject: AJS and an IPL


Question for the group.....if we are in the middle of an IPL when a job scheduled in either AJS or the base iSeries job scheduler is set to run, does it automatically set itself up to run when the IPL is complete? We're planning on stopping AJS before we IPL and starting it afterwards but I was just curious how that worked. Any info is, as always, appreciated!
