Question: 

With CA 7, will the #NTR (in JCL) or SET=NTR (on DEMAND command) work with Repeat jobs?

Answer: 

The "No Trigger" options (#NTR or SET=NTR) will not be honored on repeat jobs.

The repeat job feature allows you to schedule or run jobs and have it run multiple times on one SCHID based on specified interval criteria. The repeat job feature uses job triggering to bring itself back into the queue. Therefore you cannot use SET=NTR on the demand command or use the #NTR control card in the JCL for repeat jobs.
