Didn't you change your QLOGOUTPUT to *PND? We don't have S36 jobs anymore on my system, but all "regular" jobs look like what you have below.

Spooled representations in QPJOBLOG of a joblog are no more a "joblog" than the output of CPYF TOFILE(*PRINT) to a spool file in an output queue should be considered the "file".
Perhaps something changed which told S36 environment programs to stop copying joblogs to spool files? Let me demonstrate.

Job User Number Type -----Status---

ROBS4 ROB 285937 INTER JOBLOG PENDING
ROBS4 ROB 285936 INTER JOBLOG PENDING
ROBS4 ROB 285935 INTER JOBLOG PENDING
Notice the status of JOBLOG PENDING?
1 to work with the job
4. Work with spooled files
Just the DSPJOB output.
10. Display job log, if active, on job queue, or pending
I see the joblog, (not a spooled output of the joblog). Just like as if the job was still active.
For more information see the following:

We have some processes still running in the System/36 environment. We have
noticed that it appears jobs running in that environment do not create a
joblog to QPJOBLOG, even though, while the users are signed on to the
machine, entering option 10 on their job shows the job log entries being
The users job descriptions are set to logging 4/0/*SECLVL and Log CL =
*YES. Does anyone know if there is something preventing the job logs for
the System/36 environment jobs from being produced? I don't see any
settings in CHGS36A that affect job logging.
