Issue:

Trying to rerun jobs from the Consolidated Status Facility (CSF) using line command RM, and gets the following errors:

ESP1061E Application Manager subsystem request ended with return code 8

 

Sample entries from the CA WA ESP started task JESMSGLG:

ESP528E ERROR OCCURRED PROCESSING EVENT cyber.eventname IN APPL applname.gen#

ESP2016I 3 jobs selected for rerun: joba, jobb, jobc

ESP1061E Application Manager subsystem request ended with return code 8

ESP1800I ABOVE ERROR OCCURRED ON FOLLOWING STATEMENT IN JOB joba

SE 'ESP1007I ESPNOMSG RERUNM APPL(applname.gen#) ROOTJOBS(joba+)',LOGON,USER=(userabc)

 

Cause:

"ESP1061E Application Manager subsystem request ended with return code 8":  return code 8 means that the RERUNM (RM) function encountered an already completed application. 

 

Resolution:

The solution is to use option FORCE on the RERUNM operation.  This is done by setting option "Force if complete" to Y on the Rerun jobs panel (panelid CYBESSRRM). 

The FORCE option forces a rerun of a subset or all of the jobs in an application, if the application is already complete. By default, CA WA ESP Edition issues an error message if you try to rerun a completed application.
