RE: Qbatch won't end.



fixed

Not 100% relevant to qbatch, but I have experienced a somewhat similar type
problem with regards to ending a job.
Recently on a couple of occasions we have had users end their CA sessions
while using the interactive debug facility (STRISDB) and this has caused the
machine to go into a tight CPU loop (the job utilizing about 75% of the
CPU). From system console I have tried ending the job with no success, then
later trying the ENDJOBABN still had no effect on the job, I eventually had
to end some of the subsystems to recover the system. On one ocasion the only
thing that worked was an IPL. Has anyone ever had a similar experience with
regards to ISDB ?, any suggestions to preventing the problem or a means to
recover appriciated.
