Hi !

Do you mean the restart-parameter within a jcl ?

Or do you mean the automatic-restart option in OPC ?

Hi !


Restart Parameter within JCL (nanually)

Think of a nomal Job including 3 Steps

//Job
//Step01 ...
//Step02 ...
//Step03

Now, if Step03 is using an output file of Step02 and is canceling in fact of something, you can correct the programm and do a Job-Restart only with
performing Step03. Therefor you have to edit and then submit the jcl.

//Job ... RESTART=STEP03

Automatic-Restart by an Job Scheduling System
(...like OPC ore something else)

Herein the Jobs are part of a daily schedule which includes all batch jobs
which have to run in a specific order for a day. Depending on the scheduleing system it's possible to automatic do a jobsubmission of a restart or recovery job if a production job is canceling. So you could define to ervery sensitive job a adequate error-handling.
