4 Replies and 4706 Views sudo work-a-like for Cygwin    4706  4 Started by  Stuart Perkins Has anybody migrated scripts and job steps which utilize the 'sudo -u userid' command to submit jobs as other users or execute commands as other users from a Unix (AIX, HPUX etc..) platform to windows Looking for alternatives to rewriting a bunch of scripts and breaking jobstreams (multi-step jobs executing other user's - system accounts - jobs), which will run under native Windows or Cygwin layer.

2 Replies and 4496 Views Recurring Job Question for patching  4496  2 Started by  LauraPat Hi all -   Asking for your input please!  Question on how you would do this.  I've done it both ways. We are going to be putting in ADFS this weekend and in a couple weeks, we are going to be installing another round of CTPs (we do these quarterly).  At my previous 2 employers, who both had Lawson - we never shut down every recurring job individually - the first thing we did is made sure no jobs were actively running in the job scheduler and then did stopjobqueue and that ...

0 Replies and 1656 Views .idx files not being created  1656  0 Started by  LauraPat I could really use some help - this is really stumping us.  We have a cloned program of IC522 that we named BI523.  It's been working fine on our AIX operating system..  This weekend we moved our Lawson applications from AIX to Linux.  Now when we run the job - the custom program is no longer creating the .idx file and we can't figure out why.  I also ran the Lawson-delivered IC522 program and it does create the .idx file either.  All we did was bring the ...

10 Replies and 13334 Views Interfacing new Employees into Lawson  13334  10 Started by  Joe O'Toole We're going to be implementing an Applicant Tracking system and will need to interface data for applicants that are selected for hire into Lawson. Our existing hire process is manual and it invokes a custom DS form built off of HR11. Since we will be automating I was considering using HR511 (CSV) for this new interface. I've not used HR511 since we went live on Lawson - does anyone know if HR511 provisions the employee in Lawson to the same extent that HR11 does or is there extra work to be done...

2 Replies and 3702 Views More places to the right of decimal  3702  2 Started by  John Chappell Hello, I'm an accountant for a health insurance/care provider. We are migrating from an antiquated in-house software to a newer Epic product called Willow to manage pharmacy inventory. We have been testing for some time now. One problem that we have not been able to solve yet is a rounding variance that occurs as Willow rounds financial transaction data down to hundredths. No one here seems to think we can import any more than two places to the right of the decimal. I'm having a hard time ...

3 Replies and 3370 Views Custom Calendar  3370  3 Started by  LauraPat Because we don't have a true job scheduler (like Tidal - which works awesome with Lawson!) - I'm looking for a way to create a custom calendar and have programs key off of that to determine whether a program should run or not based on whether it is a holiday, etc.  We have jobs that we do not want to run on holidays and as far as I can tell there is nothing in the Lawson job scheduler for that.  I was thinking of create a custom database calendar - that could be updated once a year via...

17 Replies and 17132 Views Conversion from AS400 to WIndows  17132  17 Started by  Deleted User I have an older database from release 6.1 (I beleive) from the AS400, and I am backing all of the files off into CSV files. The next step will be to import the data into A newer Windows based version of Lawson. My client has not yet bought the new Lawson so I am not able to get any technical support from Lawson. My question is, is there a conversion tool that Lawson has that will take my CSV files from the old Lawson system and convert them to the newer Windows based Lawson files If not, what i...
