Symptoms

There is an old job that was in DISABLED status and had no start date, no end date. However, during a weekend activity this job as enabled by mistake by a script, and  then the job started.

We thought that not having a START DATE, an END DATE and a FREQUENCY a job would have not been started by oracle even if enabled.
