We have a QZDASOINIT job running in the QHTTPSVR sub-system. User is
QWEBADMIN, type it BATCHI and the job started way back on 03/10/12. (We
don't IPL very often...)
Some of our .NET code calls RPG programs to produce reports. UDATE is
commonly used for the current date i report headings. The QZDASOINIT
jobs in QUSRWRK are ended each night, so UDATE, in theory, works for
these RPG programs.
However, we recently got a report with a 3/10/12 date on it. We deduce
that this report somehow got attached to the QZDASOINIT job in QHTTPSVR.
Two things I don't understand.
1) Why would .NET connect to a job running in QHTTPSVR? I'd have
expected a connection to QUSRWRK.
2) What's a QZDASOINIT job doing in QHTTPSVR in the first place? Again,
I would expect QZDASOINIT to be only in QUSRWRK, though I see a couple
(OK, there may be lots of things I don't understand)
3) For that matter, what is the QHTTPSVR subsystem anyway and how does
it start? We don't do Websphere, and we have CHGHTTPA AUTOSTART(*NO) but
I suppose someone could have done STRTCPSVR *HTTP.
4) Do I need QHTTPSVR? Can I just do ENDTCPSVR *HTTP? Or end the SBS?
You may have guessed that we don't have a full time System Admin...
