Job running before schedule

Meni Ariely (European Patent O 12 years ago updated by anonymous 9 years ago 4

Good morning,
We have a major job that runs every night at 03:00, except on Sunday. The schedule has been set as follows:
Runs every 1 day(s) at 03:00:00 starting from 20.08.2012
•Does not run on the days of Sunday
In spite of this schedule the job runs at 00:00 between Sunday and Monday and again at 03:00 on Monday.
Any idea why this happens?

Hi Meni,

Thanks for bringing this to our attention. There appears to be an issue with the handling of exclusion periods in the current releases of FIM Event Broker that causes the issue you are seeing. We have logged these internally and will endeavour to correct this behaviour in a future release.

In your installation, if this behaviour is becoming problematic, it can be worked around in one of the following ways:

  • Update the schedule to also not run between 00:00:00 and 02:59:59 Monday morning
  • Move the schedule to run at 00:00 every night, such that you won't have the additional time between the end of the exclusion period and the time the operation list should run
  • Replace the schedule with 6 weekly schedules that each run at 3:00 on a different day of the week (except Sunday)

If the above workarounds are appropriate until the next release, please let us know and we will mark this issue as resolved, and follow up this behaviour internally. Please let us know if we can be of any further assistance.


This issue has not been updated for two weeks, and is still not closed. Update the issue with the current status or progress the issue.

The proposed workaround has worked for us.

Confirmed, thank you for letting us know.
