PMDC -- HOW DO YOU UPDATE THE KEYS

Discussion created by ca.portal.admin on Sep 18, 2007
Hello All:

We have a new client that uses PMDC and they just received new keys, can
someone tell me how to update these keys? They kind of look like a ZAP?

Also does ISP have a web site where you can download their
documentation.

Thanks to everyone who has pointed Bill to our Web Site.

I have contacted him directly because, as it turns out, his new
client is from Europe
and not been under our support umbrella. However, I will ensure that
he gets running
and I have sent him a set of manuals and also directed him to the
mainframe library
where they also exist.

Thanks again.

Sincerely,

Subject: online display of job accounting info


Who ever wondered which batch job is preventing an area from going
online? Or, which cics transaction is holding an area in update mode ad
nauseum? Who's looked at PMRM and started cursing because it displays
everything except what you need to know, like the JES jobname and user
id on the job card. What good is the program name that did the bind
run-unit to operators who want to cancel a problem job? In the past,
I've impressed those around me by reading the ERE in hex. But, this is
2007, there's got to be a better way. My question, finally, is, does
anyone have a home grown program that wil display useful information,
like, jes/cics userid, area name, update or retrieval status, and jes
job name? Also, the start-time of the job would be nice. Except for
the information from the ere memory display, all of this info is
available in various dcmt commands, oper, and other stuff, but it sure
would be nice to have one source of intelligent information on one
screen.

Re: Stall waiting for EREECB
"I think with CHKUSER, you get an ABORT, don't you?
I thought the subtask enqueues on SUBSCHEMA-CTRL or some other resource.
If it sees it's gone because the batch task finished or abended, and the
run-unit is still open, it knows to ABORT the run-unit rather than let it
hang around and STALL.
I think it's the batch equivalent of IDMSTRUE for IDMSINTC.

Thanks.

Adding on to Lutz and Pete's comments:

If you have a non-zero CHECK USER value in the sysgen, you can eliminate
batch abends or other exits without a FINISH as the problem. CHECK USER
sets up OS tasks that provide tripwires for batch rununits that terminate
without saying goodbye.

Some common causes:
Use of internal sorts; executed between the BIND and the FINISH
Console messages not timely replied to
Highly loaded CPU with batch running at very low priority
EXTERNAL WAIT set too low
Program terminates without FINISH and no CHECK USER mechanism

Kay,

The EREECB is waited on by the CV for the next DML from an external
requestor. The maximum time that CV will wait is defined by EXTERNAL
WAIT TIME.

So a stall waiting on EREECB means that the batch job has not issued a
DML for the time specified EXTERNAL WAIT TIME.

Hope this helps

Pete

Subject: Stall waiting for EREECB

Sometimes a batch run-unit abends with a DC001003 abend (stalled waiting
for EREECB). There is no further information on the IDMS log. The ECB
is of course long gone by the time we are looking at this. According to
the message definition, this abend can be caused by exceeding the
inactive interval, the internal wait time, or the external wait time.
That covers a lot of possibilities. Is there any way to get more
information (after the fact) about what the run-unit was waiting for?

Re: RHDDCODE and tilde
"Hi Kay

We had a similar problem when we went from IDMS 15.0 to 16.4. The tilde
character was used by the terminal emulator to produce the German
character ""sharp-S"". When the code page changed, the ADSO maps started
rejecting the character as ""non-alphabetic"".

We edited the 1140 code page macro to change
#DEFBYTE A1,ASCII=7E,TYPE=HEX tilde
To
#DEFBYTE A1,ASCII=7E,TYPE=ALPHA tilde

After we installed the new table and cycled the regions, everything
worked correctly again. BTW, the code table was mentioned in the
release summary guide in a vague sort of way.

As a side note, I have used the tilde character for years. Since it is
so rarely used by anybody else, it makes a handy eye-catcher or
change/replace character, unlikely to be found in any file, and it takes
the little finger of the left hand to type it :-)~
