I'm pretty sure (but not positive) that there was no STRTCP
in his QSTRUP at the time.
This is the message he reported:
TCP1A1F 50 10/05/09 21:21:34.084376 QTOCTCIX 02D7 QCMD Message: Cannot process request while 059773/QSYS/QSYSARB5
Cause: The requested function cannot be performed while job
059773/QSYS/QSYSARB5 is using object QUSRSYS/QTCPACT
of type X'19EF'.
An attempt to allocate QUSRSYS/QTCPACT failed after
waiting 30 seconds. Recovery: Do one of the following and then try the request
again. - Wait until job 059773/QSYS/QSYSARB5 is not using
- Use the command ENDJOB JOB(059773/QSYS/QSYSARB5)
OPTION(*IMMED) to end job 059773/QSYS/QSYSARB5.
If the problem persists, use the Analyze Problem (ANZPRB) command to report it.
I wonder if this wasn't the problem:
From SKB Document Number: 454746342
There are several things to be aware of when configuring and attaching a 3494 tape media library to the system via TCP/IP for V5R2M0 and above.
When the system is ended to a restricted state, TCP/IP is ended. When a save or backup job then tries to use the 3494, the code detects that TCP/IP was ended and it starts TCP/IP in restricted mode. After this occurs and if later a PWRDWNSYS with Restart type *IPLA is run, TCP/IP will fail to start. In this case, users
should issue the ENDTCP command before powering the system down.
When a 3494 is configured to use TCP/IP, users should ensure that
the 3494 device configuration will not vary on at IPL. What happens is the 3494 tape device might vary on before the STRTCP occurs. In this case, TCP/IP starts as if the machine were in restricted mode: STRTCP STRSVR(*NO) STRIFC(*NO) STRPTPPRF(*NO). When the IPL process starts TCP/IP, the STRTCP command fails with
the message TCP/IP already active.
