Jobs that are simulated are assigned a zero return code.
There are two ways to 'simulate' a job. You can simulate the job now or set the job to simulate in the future. If you know that when the job should run in the future you want it to be simulated, you can mark the job to simulate itself. The job can either be simulated when all the normal requirements are met for the job or when all the requirements except the file dependencies are met.
To manually simulate now, you right click the job and select the “simulate now” option.
Event Definition 93 can be configured to notify you that “UserX” did a manual simulate job run on “JobX”.
To simulate in the future, open the Windows Administrator program, Go to the Jobs Folder, select your view and edit a job record, command tab, and use the same pulldown menu field where you set jobs to be Marked Complete Once Started.
