Error description

  • There are times when abnormal re-starts of MQ or RIT can leave
    unwanted entries in the namelists 'COM.GREENHAT.INTERCEPT' and
    'RIT.DIVERT.RULES'.
    
    This can cause confusion to users and potentially slow the
    operation of the Exit.
    
    New recording and stub entries might be prevented if the
    namelist has been completely filled.
    
    
    WORKAROUND:
    
    1. Stop RIT recording and MQ stubs.
    2. Manually delete entries from the namelist.
