Here is the scenario:
We have 7 replication jobs that should run starting at 08:00 AM every 3 hours until 05:00 PM. The way we configured this is:
Job 1 - Runs every 3 hours (limited by schedule from 08:00 am to 05:00 pm)
Following jobs are configured to run "After this job:" (Job 2 runs after 1, Job 3 runs after 2 and so on)
All the jobs take to complete between hour and half or two hours.
Here is the problem:
Every day job 1 starts running at 8:00 am and then all the jobs continue to run ok. But at 9:00 am Job 1 starts running again. This eventually sets in motion all the replications again. Considering that when Job 1 starts, there are still running jobs from the previous 8:00 am trigger. We have overlapping of replications which often create issues and errors.
I tried to pull settings with the console (maybe the GUI was buggy) but as far as I can understand nothing should set this job to run at 9:00 am
Code: Select all
