Starting production plan processing

About this task

To start a production cycle, follow these steps:
  1. Log in as TWS_user on the master domain manager.
  2. At a command prompt, run the script command . ./TWS_home/ in UNIX® or TWS_home\tws_env.cmd in Windows® to set up the environment, then run the JnextPlan job by entering, for example on a UNIX® workstation, the following command: -from 05/03/06 0400 tz Europe/Rome -to 06/06/06

    This creates a new production plan that starts on the third of May 2006 at 4:00 a.m. (Europe/Rome time) and stops on the sixth of June 2006 at 3:59 a.m. The processing day will start at the time specified on the master domain manager in the variable startOfDay.

  3. When the JnextPlan job completes, check the status of HCL Workload Automation:
    conman status
    If HCL Workload Automation started correctly, the status is

    If mailman is still running a process on the remote workstation, you might see that the remote workstation does not initialize immediately. This happens because the workstation needs to complete any ongoing activities involving the mailman process before re-initializing. After the interval defined in the mm retry link parameter set in the TWS_home/localopts configuration file elapses, the domain manager tries again to initialize the workstation. As soon as the ongoing activities complete, the activities for the next day are initialized. For information about the localopts configuration file, refer to HCL Workload Automation Administration Guide.

  4. Increase the limit to allow jobs to run. The default job limit after installation is zero. This means no jobs will run.
    conman "limit;10"
