Re: PWRDWNSYS in CL program



fixed

I'm reevaluating my entire power handling program(s).

The main power handling program, once it's gotten a CPF1816, meaning power
is out, calls a subprogram to do the bulk of the work and decision making.

If that subprogram receives a message of a weak battery, it does a
PWRDWNSYS *IMMED, sets parameter &RETURN to "Y" and returns to the main
program.

The main program, seeing the "Y" returned to it, does a DLCOBJ on the
message queue it's been monitoring and ends itself. I was just wondering
if it ever even would get back to the main program.

if you NEED it to go on, you could try delayed with a small delay.
Most of the time I will do
PWRDWNSYS OPTION(*CNTRLD) DELAY(120) RESTART(*YES)
DSPJOBLOG OUTPUT(*PRINT)
SIGNOFF *LIST
after I've already ended to a restricted state. Stays running to either
1 - Two minutes has past
2 - I execute the SIGNOFF *LIST

Getting ready to IPL a new lpar...

If a PWRDWNSYS *IMMED is issued in a CL program, does the CL program stay
on that statement until that job is bombed? Or does it start the power
down sequence and then move on?

If someone wants to test it today and let me know, that would be swell. :)

Thanks.
