Hello,

What was in the documentation that was not clear? If you post what you found, someone may be able to clarify.

There is no definition other than the one you provide for resources that you define (i.e. special resources are local to organizations that choose to use them).

From IBM:
You can use Tivoli OPC special resources to represent any type of limited
resource, such as tape drives, communication lines, or a database. A special
resource can be used to serialize access to a dataset or to limit the number of file
transfers on a network link. The resource does not have to represent a physical
object in your configuration, although often it does
Hope this helps,
d.sch.

Thanks for this definition :D but I am having also problems of understanding this SP from other points of view, for example : What happens if I cancell the SP that is being used by a job to pass it to the job that waits it? What happens with that job that was using it?


Thanks in advance! and thanks for the other answer!

Hello,

If there'd been only 1 SP, i'd have guessed a typo - when there were more, i thought somethng new had joined the topic :)

These resources and jobs using them should be handled like everything else, i would imagine.

The difference is that these are user defined. I suggest you define a couple and do some experimenting.
Hope this helps,
