SCOT / SOST 'Wait Time'

Hello,

I am configuring SCOT in my SCM 2007 sandbox and when I send test messages they sit in the 'waiting' status. Upon looking in SOST I see that I have all of the test messages I sent in the status of 'Dispatch time not yet reached.' All of the messages have a dispatch time of 6 hours after I created the message.

I see the option within SOST to change the 'wait time.' If I do this, the message will send.

How do I change the default to not wait 6 hours? Is this something new to the 700 kernel? I've not experienced this in any of our 640 systems before.

I checked that the system time matched the current time so I do not believe that is the problem.

Thank you.

~TJ

    Not sure if this might help. And I'm getting a feeling that you have already checked this before or may not be applicable to SCM, but its worth giving a try.

    See if the job SAPCONNECT_ALL_SEND is running. If you increase the frequency of the job, the mails wont be stuck in wait state.

    Hi Wilkinson ,

    Yeah this would help you schedule the job "sapconnect all send" much frequently it would helpyou to resolve the problem.

    It's not the sapconnect job that's the problem. It runs every 5 minutes and completes successfully. It doesn't send any messages because the messages haven't reached their dispatch time yet. If I manually kick off the process of sending emails they're not sent either. After their dispatch time is met, then the sapconnect job sends them without any problem.

      MSG # - 672

      Long Text - Will be sent after 02/12/2008 13:06:07

      Definition

      A message was sent from the application. The application told the send interface that the message must not be sent before a specified time.

      Use

      The message is not currently recorded by the send process. Only when the send time specified by the application has been reached, will the send process send the message.

    HI TJ:

    We are experiencing the same problem in ECC and PI7 systems as well.

    We send the email at 9:00AM, but it doesn't get released by SAP until a few hours later.

    Were you able to find a solution for this?

    Thanks!

    Imran

      HI TJ:

      Thanks for the prompt reply.

      I will go ahead and open a message with SAP for this. Maybe they will have a solution.

      Thanks!

      We has this issue in our newly installed SCM 2007 system (SP14). Simply changing both System and User time zone setting to app server time zone in STZAC fixed the issue.
