Issue:

After a COLD start of CA WA ESP, many jobs remain in status "Submit delayed, Class held", and Pnode SUBDELAY.   

Environment:
CA Workload Automation ESP Edition r11.4 Z/OS
Cause:

Prior to the COLD start, the EVENT's CLASS was placed on HOLD via command "CLASS classname HOLD".

Since the information about CLASS queues, and their associated EVENTs are kept in the ESP Checkpoint file (CKPT), and the COLD start re-formats the CKPT file, all previous CLASS settings are deleted.  CLASS manipulation (e.g. CLASS classname RELEASE) can no longer be done because there are no existing CLASS queues found in the CKPT file.

Resolution:

 Resubmit Jobs that are in "Submit delayed, Class held" status.

Additional Information:

- CLASS command is documented in the CA WA ESP Edition DocOps space under content "Commands".

- The COLD start process is documented in the CA WA ESP Edition DocOps space under content "Operating" - "Controlling CA WA ESP Edition"
