Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED: All Users of the DSNTIJNH CATENFM job.       *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: The DSNTIJNH job was used while in      *
    *                      NFM and this prevented later            *
    *                      CATMAINT and CATENFM processing.        *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION: Apply corrective PTF when available          *
    ****************************************************************
    The ACOMHALT process from the DSNTIJNH job is only applicable
    while a subsystem is going through the ENFM process. It should
    not affect CATMAINT or CATENFM processing outside of an active
    ENFM process. In the reported case it was interfering with a
    subsystem's attempt to enter the CM* mode.
    
    The DSNTIJNH job is used to halt the DSNTIJEN ENFM process.
    When used, the ENFM process will stop after the current ENFM
    step completes.
    
    If the DSNTIJNH job is used while in NFM then it may prevent
    other CATMAINT or CATENFM processing.
    
      In the reported problem, a DSNTIJNH job was run while in NFM
    and then a DSNTIJCS job was run to put the subsystem into CM*.
    The DSNTIJCS job failed with a return code=6 and the following
    MSGDSNU777I message being displayed in the job output:
    
    DSNU777I -DB2A 042 10:43:44.73 DSNUECMI - CATENFM UTILITY STATUS
             - SKIPPING STEP BECAUSE HALT WAS SPECIFIED.
    
    The subsystem remained in NFM.
    
    The same problem would occur if the DSNTIJES job was run to
    have a subsystem enter the ENFM* mode.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Code has been modified to correct the aforementioned problem.
