Hi All,

Just want to know if it is possible to connect two external batch job schedulers to one SAP instance (say one is Redwood and one is some one else like Dollar Universe or so).

Asking this as it may be the case that both may be using XBP interface.

Thanks a lot.

Best Regards,

A follow-up to this question.

Watch out for external job schedulers that collect and present a list of the jobs on the SAP system.  If they also send a confirm after receiving the job (to prevent getting the same jobs again the next time) you will want to allow only one to collect the jobs.  Otherwise the schedulers will have incomplete lists.

Same we were thinking. Thanks for confirmation.

Hi Vithal,

Yes, this is possible for almost all functions. The only thing to take care of is the intercepting of end-user jobs. If you let both schedulers intercept end-user jobs, you will not know which one picks up which job.
