Whenever I try to create a new job in iManager for IDM 3.51 I my option
to select an installed job says "There are no installed jobs". Only
the CUSTOM option is available to me.

I have an HR SQL driver that frequently is offline because of what
happens on the HR side. I want to simply start this driver every
morning at 6am.

If I go into Designer, I can schedule a job (not sure what to use for
the SCOPE) and push the change to eDirectory. The job shows up in
eDirectory, but in iManager, if I try to edit the job, I get a java
error that says contact Novell.

I have to go into ConsoleOne, open the driver, find the job, delete it
and try it all over again, with the exact same results. I suspect it
has something to do w/ iManager telling me there are no installed
jobs.

Anybody have any idea ....
1. how to fix this problem so I can submit jobs w/ out getting java
errors
2. how to populate my engine w/ pre-written jobs.
3. what setting do I select for the SCOPE option when using jobs to
simply start a driver.

My IDVAULT edirectory machine is a windows 2003 server running eDir
8.7.3.9

The java error I get is attached.
