Question:

What Happens in CA View when the SARSTC Started Task is Stopped During a View Backup?

Environment:
CA View - all releases
Answer:

If a CA View SARSTC task is attempted to be stopped with a STOP (P) operator command, with "/P sarstc", while a View backup is in progress, there will be the generation of message:

  SARBKU07  Backup cycle is running - Reply W (wait) to wait for it to complete or T (terminate)

Reply to the message, based on what is appropriate at the time.

 

With SARINIT setting of STACKBU=NO (the default), a subsequent backup cycle will not run until the current backup cycle in question is addressed.

 

If there is no eventual response to either the "W" or the "T", then please follow process:

 . Cancel the SARSTC task using "/C sarstc".

 . Start the SARSTC task using "/S sarstc,OPT=STOPBU".

 . Either wait for the next View backup to run, or a backup can be forced using "/F sarstc,NEW".
