We're just looking into using the CMC scheduler to execute BODI jobs. However it appears that CMC doesn't detect job failures on the DI side. Is that really true? If so I'm not sure if we can really use CMC as detection of job failure is a pretty significant feature of any scheduler. Below is an an excerpt from the CMC manual which appears to confirm this.
If this isn't possible we're going to have to look at other options. We have Control-M in our environment but only for mainframe usage so we'd need to extend that. I'm also concerned that we'd need to start writing scripts to glue the components together whereas the CMC solution provided a nice seemless integration.
Thanks in advance,
For program objects, the program must run in order to succeed. If the
program does not run, the instance is considered a failure. If the program
runs, but does not perform the tasks it is supposed to, it is still considered
a successful instance because the program object ran. BusinessObjects
Enterprise does not monitor problems with the program object's code.
