could you please help me to find out the cause. when my job ran via CA-7 the step got repeated by itself and abended.. i canceled the job and demanded again and the job wend fine without repeating the step.
I understand that the steps does not get repeated by themselves. Is there any way i can see the changes which was done in the job when it came to the queue. to be more specific, when the job comes to the CA-7 queue is there any way we can check what was edited(when the job was in CA-7 queue) by the user ???
not job!! the step was repeated and job got abended. when i ad a look in Caview i saw same steps one after another. so wht i did canceled the job and demanded the job again.. the job went fine the the step was not repeated.. i have asked my CA support people but they were unable to find out the cause... i m suspecting someone has edited the job when it was in CA-7 queue.. the job is setup same as it is setup in my other environment..
that was the reason i was asking if you GURU's if we can find out what was edited in the job when it was sitting in CA-7 queue.
If someone edited the job while it was in the queue, it is very possible that the extra steps were (probably inadvertently) added -- the CA-7 editor commands are NOT like ISPF in any way. However, I am not aware of any way to find out who did the edit -- CA-7 doesn't log edit requests AFAIK (although that may be a feature not in use at my site?) so while you could find out who was using CA-7 at the time, you cannot find who changed your specific job.
