Description:

When using a date simulator product with the new DATE_SIMULATOR_SVC SYSIDMS parameter, it is possible that a batch job will loop.

Solution:

There is a new SYSIDMS parameter DATE_SIMULATOR_SVC, provided by RO24032, and documented in RI24035. Its purpose is so that date simulator products can be used with CA-IDMS without having to apply any PTFs.

If the date simulator is to be used with batch jobs, the DATE_SIMULATOR_SVC parameter must be specified in the SYSIDMS file for both the CV and the batch job.

If this is not done, the batch job will loop.
