Hi,

I'm admnistrator on Control-M since 6 months and i'm very interested by this subjet.

In fact, i search information on configuration and infrastructure on Control-M serveur on MVS with Control-M serveur on UNIX and Enterprise Manager in UNIX too. i have Control-M agent on UNIX and Windows.

Nice to read you.

Is there anyway to see complete the list of successors and predecessors for a particular job in Control M ...as the way we see in changeman?

There are two different products in control M. One is Mainframe Control-M and the other is GUI interface Control-M.

In both you can see all predecessors and successors.

Mainframe control-M uses cobol, JCL etc same as regular process.

GUI Interface Control-M uses unix scripts.

Coming to Tivoli is also a good scheduling tool but decided by the site which tool they want to use.

All the scheduling tools does the same purpose but they are designed by different companies. All tools are good.

Anoop ,

In control-m on mainframe environment , you can view the predecessors and successors of the job , the command is

Put 'n' before the job and press 'F4' . Then press the 'Home' key and type 'ref' Enter to refresh the screen , sometimes you may not see both pred/succ in case if its not refreshed

In GUI environment

Open a viewpoint containing all the jobs
press CTRL+F to open Find Job dialog .
Put the job name and hit enter
Now you can see its pred/succ

Regards
Adham

N Enter will show you the job's immediate pred/succ
N F4 shows you the entire stream that the job comes into .

Recommended is N F4
cos doing N F4 is useful when a job is late or in failure for a long time , you will check the no of successor jobs dependent on this failed/late job ,

I meant that when I did "N" <enter> I did get the entire indented and level#'d list of pred's and succ's.

Perhaps the F4 has some installation-specific function.

Anyhow - I've seen this N command (means Net) but never tried it. HELP shows that Net stands for "network of predecessor and successor jobs" - not an overly meaningful abbrev.

Note that you can "N" next to one of these without having to F3 back to the regular active env screen.

Thanks for showing us this great feature.
