You can update job priority for any job in the queue using only the parameters.xml file, not directly in the command line. For example, if jobs A and B are waiting in the queue and you want to run job B first, set the priority for B to HIGH and the priority for A to MEDIUM.

If security is enabled, the user's permissions must include Change job priority to modify the priority of jobs in the queue.
  1. At the Data Mover command line prompt, type datamove update_job_priorities -f parameters.xml, where the parameters.xml file identifies the new priority for each job to be updated.
The output for update_job_priorities will contain two lists; one list identifies the jobs that were updated successfully (success_list), and one that identifies any jobs that failed with the reason (failed_list).
