Good day

We have the following set up, but it will run successful for a few times, then suddely abend, but run successful again on a retry. It is not time related as we eliminated it already. Is there something we miss in the below?

On an abend I can see the following two things:

1. SEL STAT WHERE (STARTT = (01/09/2012,05:22:02) STOPT = (01/09/2012,05:42:35) CCODE = (NE,0) PNUM = 46919 TYPE = (CT RT RJ PT)) FILE.
2. SCIB022I CACS2LAW (00046919) STEP3 00000001/XSMG402I
SCIB022I CACS2LAW (00046919) 00000001/SVTM100I

The SVTM100I error is regarding TCQ deletion and I think it might be the problem, but I do not know how to fix it..

CACS2LAW PROCESS
SYMBOL &OFILE=\'\ ||
&TODSN || _ || &DATE ||

SYMBOL &RUN1=\'\scp -p || \ \ || / ||

and what does the issue have in common with COBOL ? :evil:
cheers

What did the vendor support personnel tell you when you asked the question of them?

Topic moved since not COBOL related in any way.

Hello and welcome to the forum,

Is TCQ a typo? I'm not familiar with this tca (3 char abbrev).

Is there something to be sent? If all is sent, the error may be due to "nothing to send".

As XSMG402I is issued first, what causes this message?
Hope this helps,
d.sch.

Robert: the vendor support was not much help. They 'investigate', but then you don't hear from them again. Thanks for moving the topic.

Dick: TCQ stands for Transmission Control Queue (TCQ). There are 2 files to be send thus STEP2 & STEP3 (the way I understand it). When the job run successfull there are no XSMG401I, but a SVTM118I. On an abend it seems like XSMG402I is issued on the first try (?) but then it seems like it is trying to do something again and then we end up with the SVTM100I to say the process on the TCQ has been deleted. I think this is the logic behind it, but I don't know what and where to fix not to end up with an abend every second day. If we rerun the job again it goes through, but I would like to have an automated retry rather then get called for it.

Hello,

Understood, but what causes a XSMG402I to be issued?

It sounds as though there is some process-specific setup or housecleaning that is leaving things "hanging". I've seen many NDM/ConnectDirect topics on several forums and do not recall a situation where the process does a "flip-flop" on alternating runs.
Hope this helps,

This is the order and meaning of the codes in the output:

SVTM118I DMPRCMGR Process Execution Status being passed to Synch Submit request. The Process status is reflected in the return code. This is the highest value for all Process steps. A non-zero value means at least one step in the Process failed. Complete statistics for this Process are available via the SEL STAT command. RC=52(x'34') indicates that MAXDELAY=0 was specified and the process did not run and was deleted. SYSTEM ACTION: Processing continues. RESPONSE: You may view the current Process status by using the SELECT STATISTICS command unless RC=52(x'34').

Regarding the above: RC000001 and: SEL STAT WHERE (STARTT = (01/09/2012,05:22:02) STOPT = (01/09/2012,05:42:35) CCODE = (NE,0) PNUM = 46919 TYPE = (CT RT RJ PT)) FILE.

XSMG402I - A user RUNTASK step completed. A RUNTASK step was completed in the user process (the user task was executed).Check the return code for user task status. SYSTEM ACTION: Normal C:D execution continues. RESPONSE: None.

SVTM100I DMSESMGR PROCESS TERMINATED. ALL PROCESSING FOR THE PROCESS HAS ENDED. THE HIGHEST RETURN CODE IS DISPLAYED. SYSTEM ACTION: THE PROCESS IS DELETED FROM THE TCQ. RESPONSE: NONE.

Thanks.
