What is the best practice and recommendation in the following situations:
1. If I want to stop Temporary CA-DELIVER without interruption of
The command to temporarily stop the CA Deliver task is:
P RMOSTC where RMOSTC represents your STC name
BUT, there are problems to issuing this command. All jobs that run
in the classes that CA Deliver monitors by the RMOPARMS parameters
JOBCLSL, SYSCLSL, and/or NETCLSL, NETDEST, and NETFORM will go into
a wait mode until the task is started again. Each job that was active
when the command was issued will receive an RMOQPR01 message every
60 seconds, "NO RESPONSE – VERIFY taskname IS ACTIVE (sid)".
2. If I want to stop permanently the STC CA-DELIVER started Task.
There are 2 commands to stop CA Deliver permanently:
a. If CA Deliver is active on an operating system, issue the
F RMOSTC,OFF where RMOSTC represents your STC name
b. If CA Deliver is not active on an operating system
(for example, after it has abended), issue the following command:
S RMOSTC,PARM=OFF where RMOSTC represents your STC name
You can completely withdraw CA Deliver from an operating system at any
time. When you withdraw CA Deliver, all monitoring of the classes
specified by the RMOPARMS parameters JOBCLSL, SYSCLSL, and/or NETCLSL,
NETDEST, and NETFORM is stopped, any service requests by jobs are
canceled, and CA Deliver is terminated.
After you withdraw CA Deliver from a system, the product's distribution
and tracking facilities continue to be performed on the current DD for
each job in progress. The DD statements currently being processed will
not have ending banner pages, history will not be completed for that
report, and the checkpoint information may not reflect the true status.
All subsequent DDs for the current step, and all subsequent steps, are
no longer under CA Deliver's control. CA Deliver distribution and
tracking facilities, however, are not performed on new jobs you execute.
For more information on these commands, please refer to the Operator Commands
Chapter in the CA Deliver Reference Guide.
