AS400 scheduled job in another subsystem


I have a few scheduled jobs that I would like them to run in subsystem qbatch2 that I created and not the regular qbatch. I have some jobs that freeze in qbatch like a bad tape during a backup and I dont want to hold these other scheduled jobs. Can you please provide the command.

Hi  se_1581,

Use command ADDJOBQE (Add Job Queue Entry) to add the new JobQ to a specific subsystem.

I created the jobq under the qbatch2 subsystem but I don't know how to change the job to the new jobq. The scheduled job is in *JOBD. I tried to change it with CHGJOB but it says it finds duplicates, the last 2 days when it ran. I selected one of the jobs but still did not change.


If the jobs are submitted  from the AS/400 scheduler use  
CHGJOBSCDE JOB(jobname)  JOBQ(qbatch2job)
if it submitted  by command SBMJOB change the parameters  JOBQ(name) in the command or in the *JOBD you use
SBJOB cmd(CALL pgm)  JOB(myjob)   JOBQ(qbatch2job)

CHGJOBD JOBD(jobdname)  JOBQ(qbatch2job)
SBJOB cmd(CALL pgm)  JOB(myjob)  JOBD(jobdname)  JOBQ(*JOBD)
