Question:

How do we resolve the console message "JMR035I REMAINDER OF THIS JOB'S OUTPUT PUT ON HOLD" generated by CA JMR for User Exit PKXTLMT?

Environment:
z/OSJes2JMR 4.6
Answer:

The documentation that describes the User Exit PKXTLMT and its functions is on page 6-11 of the CA JMR Getting Started Guide. 

PKXTLMT 
PKXTLMT uses register one (R1). CA-JMR calls the PKXTLMT 
exit whenever it is collecting a job that exceeds the user-specified 
line limit. As distributed, this exit will do the following: 

For JES2: Collect the first n lines of job data (where n= line 
limit), then place the remainder of the job in a HOLD status 
on the JES SPOOL. 

Please note that the User Exit PKXTLMT is working exactly as designed and documented. If you want the User Exit PKXTLMT to perform differently then you will have t make any required code adjustments to make it happen. This "sample" is provided for customers to begin with and then make all the changes they would like. 

The message *JMR035I REMAINDER OF THIS JOB'S OUTPUT PUT ON HOLD" is a normal informational message.
