    For example:

    There is 3 jobs defined in a SMART table, each connected by Conditions but with different scheduling criteria

    JobA - Only on Monday
    JobB - All days
    JobC - All days

    How to use the parameter "Adjust Condition=Y" in this scenario?
    In order for JobB to run regardless of the Condition it needs to receive from JobA all other days than Mondays when JobA will create the condition expected



    The parameter CTM_TABLE_ADJUST_DUMMY in the ctm_server/data/config.dat file on the Control-M/Server host needs to be set to Y (its default is N).
    This way, a dummy job will simulate JobA and JobB will be able to run on days other than Monday, ignoring the Condition needed. It's important to note that this dummy job will post the conditions and perform all the actions configured in the "Actions" tab of the original job definition.

    In Control-M/Server Version 9.0.00, this System Parameter is called CTM_FOLDER_ADJUST_DUMMY

    Be aware CTM_GROUP_ADJUST_DUMMY provided this function in earlier product versions but is obsolete as of version 7.0.00.
