Question:

When using the Automated Restart Facility (ARF) in CA 7, what is supposed to happen to a job after a TYPE IS (Interrupt Submission) is detected?

Answer:

After a type IS condition is met, the job will go into REQQ prior to executing the responses.

The job will be re-queued to the request queue and then the responses will be executed just as in the case as a type JC (Job Completion).

The job will sit in the request queue until all actions are performed (however long that may take).

The user may use a FINAL DISP of F (force complete) or C (cancel) to get the job out of the request queue.

If the job sits in the request queue with an ARFERR, the responses are not being performed. A LARFQ top-line command may be performed to check the error
