  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • HGCB is the new CICS transaction that can be used to set the
    date in the CICS region.  It picks up the date from the AGGDATE
    file.  If the CICS region is recycled and HGCB is run, the
    AGGDATE date is not picked up.  If HGCB is run a second time
    then it works properly.
    

Local fix

  • Run HGCB 2 times.

    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: Users of the HourGlass CICS batch       *
    *                      time management feature have reported   *
    *                      having to invoke the HGCB transaction   *
    *                      twice if they change the AGGDATE        *
    *                      settings right after a CICS cold        *

    *                      Problem was due to the initial open     *
    *                      state of AGGDATE.  It seems CICS        *
    *                      buffers the content of the file as      *
    *                      it opens the dataset at CICS startup.   *
    *                      The first time HGCB is invoked, the     *
    *                      buffered date setting is read in        *
    *                      even though it was already changed.     *

Problem conclusion

  • PROBLEM CONCLUSION:
    ***************************************************************
    * FIX DESCRIPTION:     1.  Logic has been added to the AGGCC  *
    *                      program to reset the AGGDATE open      *
    *                      state and flush the buffers.           *
    *                                                             *
    *                      2.  The AGGCRD11 and AGGCRD13 members  *
    *                      of the SAGGSAMP library have been      *
    *                      updated to change the initial open     *
    *                      of TDQ(AGGB) to DEFERRED.              *
    *                                                             *
    * LOCAL FIX:           Apply the TDQ initial open setting     *
    *                      in fix #2 above.                       *
