Specifying a job retry policy
When scheduling a job, you can specify that Information Console run the job again if it fails. The volume-level job retry policy specifies the default policy for all jobs on the volume. When you schedule a job, you can accept or override this policy by setting one of the options in Retry failed jobs on Schedule—Schedule, shown in Figure 3‑3.
Figure 3‑3 Specifying job retry options
The following conditions affect a job retry policy:
*For jobs that you schedule to run immediately, retry settings do not apply.
*When you select Retry N times, wait H hours M minutes between attempts, where N is not 0 and H and M are 0, the volume retries the job immediately after a failure.
*If a previous instance of a scheduled job is still in the process of retrying, Information Console cancels any new instance and displays a warning message, if the previous instance is still retrying. The number of times (N) to retry the scheduled job does not change.
Table 3‑5 describes the available options for retrying a job.
Table 3‑5 Job retry options
Use volume default
Enables you to use the default job retry policy for the volume. An out-of-the-box (OOTB) Information Console installation uses the Do not retry policy. For more information about how an administrator can change this policy, see Managing Volumes and Users.
Retry n times; wait n hours n minutes between attempts
Enables you to specify how many times iHub should retry running the job and how long the system should wait between tries.
Do not retry
Makes no effort to retry the job.
