Manoj is the authoritative source on this but my guess is that if the retry is set to 1 it would be on the same local server. If it's a server group then that server is responsible for figuring out which server within the group to actually run the job on.

Now, what happens if you set the retry to zero? I'm thinking that may be what I want. I really don't want the jobs executed twice.

In between this is what SAP Support says for RWJobLaunchMaxRetry:

"The setting you mention is not relevevant at this point as the job is
not being executed twice on same job server but at the same time on
two different job servers."

if you set this to 0, the job will not be executed at all, there is bug which instead of disabling the retry is disabling the execution itself if this parameter is set to 0, hence I suggest to set this to 1, this will be fixed in DS 4.0 SP3.4

ok, if the job is going to 2 different job servers, then it's not happening in the launcher, the execution script is being called twice

what is the SAP Message # ?

I am using DS 4.2 SP3 and this issue is still there though SAP note says its rectified in DS 4.0. I have manually disable the job from windows Task Scheduler right now, will monitor and update.

We are experiencing this issue as well using managed DS and HANA in a HANA Enterprise Cloud environment. SAP doesn't seem to have a solution. Has anyone else run into this again recently and determined root cause?

Post subject: Re: Scheduled jobs run twice - Management Console bug?

I'm experiencing jobs getting executed twice, at the same time.

This is on a clean install of DS 4.2 SP13 on Windows Server 2016, connecting to an existing local repository that was upgraded using Repository Manager.

The Windows Task Scheduler shows a single task scheduled named "AT1" which correlates to the only job scheduled in the Management Console and also found in the AL_SCHED_INFO table.

Since the install, every time the Windows scheduler kicks off the job there are two instances, at the same time.

If I run the job manually from the Management Console it runs fine. If I run the task manually from the Windows Task Scheduler dialog it runs fine.

I've deactivated the scheduled job and then activated it. That didn't help.

My next test involves exporting the job using the Export Execution Command and manually creating my own task to kick off the .bat file.

I had to write my own workaround. I posted it on the SAP discussion board (which really, really sucks for formatting, organization, etc). The post can be found here: https://answers.sap.com/answers/13010103/view.html
