Hello, how are you?

I have two job chains that are executed 2 times during the day. This chains are equal, but I need that when scheduler 1 is executed certain job use certain file, but when scheduler 2 executes another file is have to be used in that same job mentioned.

Is there a clue or something that you can orient me to search ? any idea?


Thanks.

Use the symbolics in DSN , scheduling option will give you what to override per instance.

Basically as Rohit has pointed out, the Scheduler must have some variables that you can use. JCL symbolics in the DSN could be an option too, but preferable would be an IFTHEN like construct using means of the Scheduler.

When you say ''Scheduler must have some variables that you can use'' I dont have acces to control m, can you give me a clue what should I do in this case?

IMO there is a language barrier here
scheduler VS schedule VS scheduled

my guess is that the same job chain is scheduled twice
by the same and only scheduler
so system symbols might not be of help

the only hope is that the scheduler can pass to the job some information about
the run, first/second

Please describe your environment a bit more. Is the Job submitted on two separate LPARs?
