Description:

User requested restart of a CA Batch Processor for DB2 for z/OS (RBP) process with .RESTART OVERRIDE and expected previously allocated datasets to be deleted.

Resolution:

The .RESTART command lets you begin the execution of a RBP process at a specific system point as defined by the Batch Processor SYSTEM command or after the last valid sync point.

The command has the following syntax:

.RESTART  {OVERRIDE  [DELETE] | [SYNC [ number ] [DELETE] | [SYSTEM(name,name,name,...)]}

OVERRIDE

-  Begins processing at the beginning of the data set.

DELETE

-  Deletes the data set using IDCAMS and attempts to allocate it as NEW when a data set with a disposition of NEW is found in the CA Batch Processor job stream.

-  This parameter is valid only after the OVERRIDE parameter, the SYNC parameter, or a number as follows:

    .RESTART OVERRIDE DELETE

    .RESTART SYNC DELETE

    .RESTART SYNC 5 DELETE
