You would need an utility to handle that. I'm using pmCron for OS2 and it works really great. But there are some other Cron jobb utilities available at Hobbes.

How about using the good old AT command.
Go to an OS/2 command prompt and write: AT ?

It requires that the server service is started and that there is logged in to the server.

I always use rSched to schedule something; it's one of the most reliable text-based utilities, doesn't ask much resources, andit's very powerfull. Many settings you can ajust!
You can download via Hobbes.
