Chuck,

I was in the process of looking through the job logs and history yesterday
when I had to leave (they kick me out at 1430!). But, as you surmised, the
ones I have looked at reveal nothing; even the one that applied to my
sessions. There was about an hour gap, which stopped when I started the
inquiry of the error message I was investigating and started up when
everything started shutting down.

By the way, I know that, when the system registers an abnormal end
(QABNORMSW = 1), this means that two IPLs will be necessary when applying
PTFs. But at V5R1 (sigh) I don't think that's going to happen. Is there
any other downside to leaving the system in this state, or should I re-IPL
to get iut back to normal?

Thanks.

When both the MSD is not available and vlogs are lacking, poring over the
history log and joblogs for jobs that were active when the system was forced
down [possibly produced at end of the IPL] is sometimes fruitful; although
rarely in my experience, for an apparent hard-loop.
If vlogs are lacking, I always bump up the settings to allow much more data
[even if no more headers] so something should be there /next time/ something
bad occurs.

Regards, Chuck
