    Running Control M jobs in different time zones.

    Mark Saunders

      Hi I can I ask if anyone has had any experience of using a scheduler in one time zone running jobs in multiple time zones.


      We have a scheduler in GMT which runs 99% of the jobs in GMT however we run a small number of jobs in PDT this works fine until there is a time change for daylight savings so the difference from GMT changes.


      Currently we have operations modify the jobs daily for the week that the time is differenent then the other time zone summer time change happens so the difference between the time zones is back to normal.


      Is there anyway to automate this as we know in advance when the time will change so I am guessing a job run on the scheduler could update itself ?

          Implement the Daylight saving support as it is described in the Administration manual.


          Then set the jobs at the correct timezone. CTM should do the rest.


          Test it!


          Maintain it yearly!
