That's a completey new one for me. Please post the JCL and indicate where the NIGHT parameter is.

Hi,
I read somewhere, NIGHT parameter is used to request/schedule a job to run after midnight, specially in those cases, when we need to run 'request/one time job' in production.
Though I am not sure, it may look something like:/*NIGHT,ATIME=0100*/,to indicate, that the job will be running at 1 AM, next morning.

Unfortunately I can not find any reference to NIGHT in the manuals. Is this a site specific command / exit at your site.

I can only suggest that you speak to your site support / admin people to find out.

Many sites use the job class to provide something similar. For example CLASS=N, (N for night). That won't work these days when many sites just use work load management for job scheduling.
