QUESTION:

Need to rerun an application that is several days old. Can this be done in CA Workload Automation ESP Edition if the application is no longer on CSF

ANSWER:

The RERUNM command reruns multiple jobs. The command resets the workload execution dependencies of the specified jobs to the state they were in before the jobs ran. Application Manager schedules a rerun for them as their dependencies are satisfied.
You can rerun jobs in active and completed applications.

If you rerun jobs in a completed application, CA WA ESP Edition uncompletes the application and reruns the jobs you select.


Note: To rerun jobs in a completed application, the Application Tracking Record (ATR) in the APPLFILE data set must be intact. If any of the slots of the application's ATR have been reused by a new application, the rerun will fail with an error message.

To restart the entire application, the application should be available on the CSF. This would require the application records and related JOB tracking records on APPLFILE, TRACKFILE and JOBINDEX. To restart with CA ESP Encore, it requires that each job's EXH record still exist in the EXH data set.
