xdat -c "Operation"
The xdat command starts Set Date and Time, Schedule a Job, or Remove or View Scheduled Jobs, three of the Visual System Management (VSM) applications. Set Date and Time and Remove or View Scheduled Jobs can also be started from the AIX Common Desktop Environment. From the Front Panel, select the Application Manager. Within Application Manager, select the System_Admin directory. Within System_Admin, select the desired application icon.
Set Date Time enables you to view or change your system date, time, or time zone. Much of the system processing depends on accurate date and time settings. For example, accuracy is important if you schedule jobs to run at a later time or if your system communicates with other systems.
Schedule a Job enables you to schedule operations for future processing. You can specify what shell to run the job in and if you want to be notified when the jobs starts. This graphical dialog can also be started from an application using a Schedule action or a Schedule button. The job is scheduled using the at command.
Remove or View Scheduled Jobs enables you to review and delete previously scheduled operations. The application displays the user's scheduled jobs, the date and time they are scheduled, a description and umask for each job, and directory from where each job will run.
