Error description

  • 1.  Disable all CEs
    2. Do a Save and Activate so that all CEs are disabled.
    3. Once you get your message stating that the REFRESH completed
    successfully go back to your CE listing.
    4. Select 2 CEs, I picked these 2:
    ___     ENAB      MBAT BATCHTST     CAJONES  BATCHTST CAJONES
    2012-12-12
    ___     ENAB      JSCD BTTEST       CAJONES
    2013-09-29 A0815
    
    5. Do a Save and Activate.
    
    The important part of the recreate is that one of both of the
    Control Elements has to be a Job Schedule CE.  No other combos
    results in this failure.
    
    
    You never see the Refresh completed message but after 10 minutes
    you see the following message and abend in the syslog...
    
     IKJ606I TSOLOGON REJECTED. USERID RODNEY IN USE

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED: All IBM HourGlass R610 intending to          *
    *                 utilize HourGlass with Job Schedule          *
    *                 Control Elements.                            *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: When enabling the first Job Schedule    *
    *                      Control Element using the Control       *
    *                      Center and then saving and activating   *
    *                      a new ACES data area (copy of the the   *
    *                      active elements of the repository),     *
    *                      AGGLINK issues the operator message:    *

    *                        ERROR: REFRESH TIME LIMIT EXCEEDED    *
    *                      because AGGIRIM is busy with an         *
    *                      infinite loop.  Then AGGLINK itself     *
    *                      gets an ABEND SD22 due to too long of a *
    *                      message it tries to send to the Control *
    *                      Center user doing the ACES activation.  *

Problem conclusion

  • ***************************************************************
    * FIX DESCRIPTION:     AGGIRIM module is changed to check that*
    *                      old JS CEs actually exist before trying*
    *                      to copy their start dates to new JS CEs*
    *                      with the same names.                   *
    *                      AGGRACES module is changed to shorten  *
    *                      several message lengths by removing    *
    *                      excess trailing spaces.                *
