How do I terminate a batch processor ID that is flagged incomplete as a result of an abend in a batch job when the following message is received: BPA0022E: BPID IS FLAGGED INCOMPLETE - RESTART IS REQUIRED.


The Execution Display Facility within RC/Migrator is an online execution display of analysis and Batch Processor jobs. It shows the progress of the job as it executes. When a job abends and is placed in "NI" status (Error during execution, job terminated) the following steps can be performed to terminate the BPID:

  1. Select RC/Migrator from the products main menu
  2. Select 3 - Execution Display (results in the following display)
PTEDL1        ------------ Execution Display Panel -----------
COMMAND ===>                                                 
BPID      ==> *                                               
DB2 SSID  ==> D81B             Strat Creator ==> *        Timestamp ==> * 
Status    ==> *                Strat Name    ==> *        Type      ==> *
At this point, any of the selection criteria can be entered to limit the rows retrieved:
BPID: Specify the Batch Processor ID which appears in the JCL. Strat Creator: Specify the creator of the strategy. Timestamp: Specify a timestamp to limit the rows retrieved generated during a particular time. Status: Specify "NI". Strat Name: Specify the name of the strategy. Type: Specify, S, (Sync point) A, (Analysis) M, (Message record) L, (Load record)

The selection criteria specified will then display the records that meet the selection parameters. Place a "D" (delete) next to the record to delete this entry from the log table. Proceed to restart the job with the appropriate restart parameter.
