Is there any reason you can't have a timed forced sign-off?

Our system sets the system value (name escapes me, not
signed on right now) for forcing an end to the interactive
jobs that are idle without activity after a long period of
time.

For example if

|
| I really cannot change anything - it's part of MAPICS
code.  Our AS/400
| backups start with MAPICS backup.  MAPICS is submits end
jobs for all
| inquiry jobs that have a lock on a file called SYSCTL.
Usually this is
| about 20 different users and all the jobs end within a few
minutes, there
| are no locks on SYSCTL,  and MAPICS knows it can backup
all MAPICS files.
| If
| it cannot get a lock within 1.5 hours, it aborts the
backup.  The problem
| is
| that the end request that MAPICS submits sometimes seems
not to work and I
| think it is due to Novell pop ups.

| Perhaps it is the controlled end versus the immediate?
|
| Question:  Does your logic check to see if there is a lock
on the file, if
|
| so end the job and wait until the job ends?  If so, then
perhaps you need
| to end the job still, but then check to see if there is
still a lock on
| the file.  I wonder if the job ends enough to release the
lock?

| Novell pop ups delay end job request
|
|
|
|
|
|
| Around 11 pm last night Novell sent a pop up message to a
PC workstation
| to
| warn the user that the server connection was going to be
terminated.  No
| user was around to answer the message.   The PC was also
running a MAPICS
| session at that time using Client Access.
|
| At midnight a controlled end job request (CPC1126) was
issued for the
| MAPICS
| job running on the PC but the job did not end, apparently
due to the pop
| up
| message.  Because the job did not end, we did not obtain
an AS/400 backup
| last night.
|
| I went to the PC this morning and as soon as I cleared the
Novell popups,
| the AS/400 job started ending (CPC1235),  followed 30
seconds later by the
| job actually ending (CPF1164). There was also a popup that
said Client 32:
| Could not auto-connect to server HPFS_1 because logins
have been disabled.
|
| The AS/400 spent all night trying to end this session but
would not end it
| until I cleared the pop ups.
|
| The network guys are skeptical that a Novell pop up can
prevent the AS/400
| from ending a job but are willing to work with me on this.
This is not
| the
| first time this has happened.  Has anyone encountered this
before? We run
| Novell over both IP and IPX.
