NAME
       qmove - move batch jobs

SYNOPSIS
       qmove destination job_identifier ...

DESCRIPTION
       To  move  a  batch job is to remove the batch job from the batch queue in which it resides
       and instantiate the batch job in another batch queue. A batch job is moved by a request to
       the  batch server that manages the batch job. The qmove utility is a user-accessible batch
       client that requests the movement of one or more batch jobs.

       The qmove utility shall move those batch jobs, and only those  batch  jobs,  for  which	a
       batch job_identifier is presented to the utility.

       The  qmove  utility  shall  move  batch jobs in the order in which the corresponding batch
       job_identifiers are presented to the utility.

       If the qmove utility fails to process a batch  job_identifier  successfully,  the  utility
       shall proceed to process the remaining batch job_identifiers, if any.

       The  qmove utility shall move batch jobs by sending a Move Job Request to the batch server
       that manages each batch job. The qmove utility shall not exit before the batch jobs corre-
       sponding to all successfully processed batch job_identifiers have been moved.

OPTIONS
       None.

OPERANDS
       The  qmove  utility shall accept one operand that conforms to the syntax for a destination
       (see Destination ).

       The qmove utility shall accept one or more operands that conform to the syntax for a batch
       job_identifier (see Batch Job Identifier ).

STDIN
       Not used.

INPUT FILES
       None.

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES
       The following environment variables shall affect the execution of qmove:

       LANG   Provide  a  default  value for the internationalization variables that are unset or
	      null. (See the Base Definitions volume of IEEE Std 1003.1-2001, Section 8.2, Inter-
	      nationalization Variables for the precedence of internationalization variables used
	      to determine the values of locale categories.)

       LC_ALL If set to a non-empty string value, override the values of all the  other  interna-
	      tionalization variables.

       LC_CTYPE
	      Determine  the  locale for the interpretation of sequences of bytes of text data as
	      characters (for example, single-byte as opposed to multi-byte characters	in  argu-
	      ments).

       LC_MESSAGES
	      Determine the locale that should be used to affect the format and contents of diag-
	      nostic messages written to standard error.

       LOGNAME
	      Determine the login name of the user.

ASYNCHRONOUS EVENTS
       Default.

STDOUT
       None.

STDERR
       The standard error shall be used only for diagnostic messages.

OUTPUT FILES
       None.

EXTENDED DESCRIPTION
       None.

EXIT STATUS
       The following exit values shall be returned:

	0     Successful completion.

       >0     An error occurred.

CONSEQUENCES OF ERRORS
       In addition to the default behavior, the qmove utility shall not be required  to  write	a
       diagnostic  message  to	standard  error when the error reply received from a batch server
       indicates that the batch job_identifier does not exist on the server. Whether or  not  the
       qmove utility waits to output the diagnostic message while attempting to locate the job on
       other servers is implementation-defined.

       The following sections are informative.

APPLICATION USAGE
       None.

EXAMPLES
       None.

RATIONALE
       The qmove utility allows users to move jobs between queues.

       The alternative to using the qmove utility-deleting the batch job and requeuing it-entails
       considerably more typing.

       Since the means of selecting jobs based on attributes has been encapsulated in the qselect
       utility, the only option of the qmove utility concerns authorization. The -u  option  pro-
       vides  the user with the convenience of changing the user identifier under which the batch
       job will execute.  Minimalism and consistency have taken precedence over convenience;  the
       -u  option has been deleted because the equivalent capability exists with the -u option of
       the qalter utility.

FUTURE DIRECTIONS
       None.
