APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Migration jobs for Base, Deployment Manager (Dmgr)  and
    Federated profiles can run a very long time if there is a large
    amount of application related data to migrate.  This can apply
    to any of the following jobs:  BBOWMG3B, BBOWMG3D, BBOWMG3F  and
    BBOWBPOS, BBOWDPOS, BBOWFPOS .  This can lead to the job jobs
    running out of time and failing.
    

Local fix

  • A new parameter can be added to a migration batch job. The new
    parameter to add id:  TIME=1400
    Here is an example line where the parm was added:
       //UPGRADE EXEC PGM=IKJEFT01,REGION=0M,COND=(4,LE),TIME=1440
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users migrating to IBM WebSphere        *
    *                  Application Server V7.0 on zOS where the    *
    *                  migration job exceeds the maximum time      *
    *                  allowed by the system.                      *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: Migration jobs are ab-ended by the      *
    *                      system when they exceed the alloted     *
    *                      time allowed by the system per job.     *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    The migration job end abruptly with no indication as to the
    problem.  It was determined that the migration job was still
    running but it had exceeded the time limit per job imposed by
    the system, and therefore was terminated by the system.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The system is working as designed.  However, because of the
    time needed to migrate topologies with many applications
    the migration job itself must provide a system TIMEOUT
    override value.  This APAR will provide that override value as
    part of the BBOWxPOS Job generated by zMMT.
