Time delay in step execution in JCL

Postby Rajesh Meenakshi » Tue Dec 22, 2009 7:19 pm

If there are 3 steps in a JCL, I need STEP 2 to execute 5 min after STEP 1.

DO NOT even think about it.

The job scheduling software should be easily able to handle that. And look at what you are doing, hogging an initiator for 5 minutes thus reducing the availability of resource to other users.

Hello,

Why do you believe you need a timed delay?

I suspect this is how you've chosen to solve something rather than being a requirement. . .
Hope this helps,

Make two seprate JCLs - one with first step and other with rest two-steps; then execute them accordingly.
