Question: 

Can the OS Console be used to shutdown CA 7?

Answer: 

To be able to use the OS console for shutdown of CA 7, you must first define the console to CA 7 with the following init file statements:

GROUP,NAME=CONSOLE,DEVICE=CONSL,LNAME=LCONS,OPEN=YES

LINE,NAME=LCONS,TNAME=TCONS,BUFSIZE=150,OPEN=YES

TERM,NAME=TCONS,DEVICE=CONSL,LINLEN=110,NLINE=10,CONS=ALTRN

Also, then add the following statement:

STATIONS,TRMID=TCONS,LTERM=LCONSOL

After adding these statements, a recycle of CA 7 is required.

After the above is completed, you can do a MODIFY to CA 7 to logon (/LOGON userid) and issue two /SHUTDOWN commands exactly alike:

F /LOGON userid

F /SHUTDOWN,Z* (* = method of shutdown: Z1, Z2, Z3, Z4, Z5, dmpq, or nothing)

...and then another:

F /SHUTDOWN,Z*
