CICS Restart

Postby anky48 » Wed Dec 18, 2013 2:06 am

I had started a CICS region by issuing commands in zos.After,I did a CEMT PERFORM SHUTDOWN operation.Now,when I try to restart the CICS region by issuing an AUTO restart,the CICS region cant start.And the system initialization table along with all the data sets required for CICS seem to be in use,which doesn't allow me to start the CICS region..Please help and show me the way how I can restart CICS region again..Regards

Hello and welcome to the forum,

You or your system support people need to determine why the data sets are in use.

Untill this has been resooved, i suspect you will Not be able to restart.

Are you sure that the same task is not alreadyrunning?
Hope this helps,

Yes..The same task is not running.I checked looking into active users. CICS jobs are not executed.I would like to mention,CICS shutdown was normal.May I know what may be the reason behind this? Thanx for your reply .

Hello,

Go into TSO and try to open one of the problem pds files in Edit. It should say the file is in use.

Then press F1 a couple of times (2) and the system should tell you what "has" the dataset.
Hope this helps,

or a more scientific approach ;)
( for vsam file an ISPF edit will not work)

in the ispf command line enter TSO ISRDDN
and follow the instruction for the ENQ command
to find out who/wht is holding the file and act accordingly
cheers

just try to logoff, logon, check again the ENQ status

That is insane! Logoff, logon as someone else and all will be ok.
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.
