Problem:

An Endevor package is in execute failed status. One of the package actions failed because a processor step exceeded the MAXRC for that step. The step return code is not significant to the action. If the package is reset, the backout information will be lost. How can I modify the processor to accept the warning return code ? 

Answer:

A processor is handled like any other element. It needs to be retrieved, updated, then moved to production.

  • The first step is to identify the location of the processor source.
    • In the element action output (C1MSGS1), processor information is listed in the messages C1G0246I, C1G0247I, and C1G0248I.
  • Go to the location and retrieve the processor source from the footprint location. 
    • You will need to have  Endevor administrator authority to act on type 'process'.
  • Edit the processor and make your changes.
  • Now add the processor back to Endevor as any other element.
  • Depending on how you are configured, you may need to move the processor up the map.
  • You should now be able to restart the package.
    • The completed actions will be bypassed, and action will begin with the element that failed.
    • If the edits to the processor were correct, the package should complete. 

Note:

Some sites may have different procedures for updating and testing changes to processors.
