OPC/TWS Special Resource Intervals

Postby jenerator » Sat Jul 18, 2009 6:58 am

Hi...

We use TWS Special Resource Intervals to control batch job submission, for example when planning for a scheduled outage we can pre-set SR unavailable intervals.

For some reason this function has recently stopped working - the SR exists, and Intervals are set up correctly but are being ignored. ie. batch runs! Turning the SR off/on via the CLI or batch works, but the ability to (pre)set the date/time interval is not.

I've checked the SR Max Usage Limit (0) and Used For (B), and ensured all Workstations are included (*). What am I missing???

Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks,
Jenny.

Hello Jenny and welcome to the forum,

For some reason this function has recently stopped working
Someone has changed something. . . ?

Is there a from/to date specified or is the end date infinity? Has there been a recent upgrade?

I don't have access to a system that uses tws, so i can't refer to "ours".
Hope this helps,
d.sch.

Hi Dick,

No, there is no end date parameter in OPC Special Resources and no, there haven't been any recent upgrades.

Yep, something has changed, but I can't find what it is... Hoping someone "out there" can provide some suggestions!

Thanks,
Jenny.

Hi Jenny,

Not what i'd call a good solution, but what happens if you define a new special resource with the same intervals defined and schedule something against it. What if the intervals were different for a test?

This might help isolate if the service has a problem or something has gone amiss with that one SR. . .
Hope this helps,

One of our brighter sparks figured it out.

"It's to do with the special resource in the current plan having the AVAILABLE field set with a value of Y (instead of blank so that it uses the default values). "

Problem fixed!
:D
