Change 'User ID' for background jobs (SM:* ) in CEN

Hello all,

The previous basis administrator seems to have created all the 'SM:* ' jobs (for example: 'SM:SELFDIAGNOSIS', 'SM:EXEC SERVICES', 'SM: SCHEDULER') to run under his name. After his user ID is locked in the satellite system, we receive the following RFC error under ST22 in satellite systems, 'CALL_FUNCTION_SYSCALL_ONLY'. I changed the background jobs to run under a valid user ID. Surprisingly, the job runs only once under the new user ID and switches back to the old user ID from the second run.

I followed the below thread:

Changing user for job SM:SELFDIAGNOSIS ? and tried to apply the suggestions but, that didn't help me either. Please help me fix this problem.

One other thing that I notice in most of these "SM:* " jobs is that they don't seem to display the frequency of the job inspite of the fact they run weekly or daily.

Thank you.
