Hello everybody,

I have more than 30 years experience on mainframe from dos to Z/os and scheduled millions applications on it, including end-to-end.
Today on my new client, i arrive on a Z with OPC not configured as a server with unix but i have Unix servers separately with distributed TWS.
On both, the current plan start each day at 11:00 for a production start at 18:30.
When i try to schedule a standard TWS jobstream (monday till friday on workdays), on OPC it's perfect and on TWS Unix if it is before 00:00 all is okay, but if i want to schedule at 7:00 tomorrow, the result is that TWS schedule the jobstream on friday for saturday morning, and if i add freedays in the week with except don't run, it exactly runs on these freedays.
What it's strange is that i find no one example on the net about this nor on any brochure about this problem.
And what is totally extraordinary and against all logics is : if i think "MINUS 1" for everything : i schedule from sunday to thursday with saturday as free day and add freedays calendar with minus 1 free days : it's working perfectly ???
Is anyone has experienced this kind of UFO ???

As far as I remember an OPC connector has to be installed for communication between OPC-TWS.

Hi PeterHolland,

Thanks very much for your reply,
Yes, you are right, I worked at a customer with the connector,
And everything was planned from the Z, simply brilliant,
But we will not have it,
And I can not plan correctly on unix / tws,
Especially when I have somewhat complicated cycles,
It the reverse of what I ask,
That's why I tell the unix team,
That with the Z, I have a Rolls Royce in my hands,
We requested the assistance of an IBM consultant,
Thank you again for spending time on my question.

Hi nsbl,

I'm not as experienced as you, but from your description it seems to be an issue with a starting point, which is indexed 'zero' on the one platform, and indexed '1' on the other...

I was triggered by your 'minus 1' solution...
