pbs_rerunjob — rerun a pbs batch job


#include <pbs_error.h>
#include <pbs_ifl.h>

int pbs_rerunjob(int connect, char *job_id, char *extend)


Issue a batch request to rerun a batch job.

A Rerun Job batch request is generated and sent to the server over the connection specified by connect which is the return value of pbs_connect().

If the job is marked as being not rerunable, the request will fail and an error will be returned.

The argument, job_id, identifies which job is to be rerun it is specified in the form: sequence_number.server

The parameter, extend, is reserved for implementation defined extensions. As if TORQUE 2.2, the string define RERUNFORCE may be used to force a rerun if the mini-server fails. This is dangerous. Do not used it.
