I get this message when someone or something is trying to connect to a system that has since long been Obsolete. My question is : is there a way to get to the job that is trying to get a connection to that location?

    I get this message when... Where do you "get" the message? In a joblog? In a message queue? In the history log? What is the message identifier? Tom

    Hi Tom, I get this "message" in the WRKPRB display. The message Id is CPP1235. Actually it is normal to give that error as the system that the request is trying to connect to no longer exists. My problem is getting to the Job that is trying to connect to that server that is no longer available.

    In the WRKPRB Problem Log, take option 5='Display details' against the problem. That should get you to where you first see "CPP1235". Then, either take the "Date and time detected" from there or press F6='Display problem history' and take the date and time from there. Once you have the date and time values, use them in the DSPLOG command to see the system history beginning at that time. You might choose to scroll backwards from there to see what was happening earlier. You might see CPC2606 'Vary off completed for device...' or CPC2610 'Vary off completed for controller...' or similar messages in the history log at the time of the problem log entry. Look for messages at that time or just before that time that reference the object (the controller or the device or whatever object tries to point to the obsolete system) that caused the problem entry. Put the cursor on each of those messages and press F1=Help. When the message help is displayed, press F9=Display message details. The message details should show a job name. The job might be a system job such as a QCMNARBxx job. Skip any of those first, and look for user jobs. Any non-system jobs that cause the suspicious messages may have instructions that attempt to communicate with the obsolete system. If you don't find any non-system jobs (if only system jobs cause the messages), then your system probably just has a controller and/or device description that is defined to vary itself on automatically. You can probably just vary them off and delete them. That is, the connection was defined to auto-start. It tried to start and there wasn't any answer from the other end. The problem log entry is just warning that there could be a networking problem. Of course, you know that it isn't a problem for your system. Tom

    Thanks for Your answer Tom, I have gone that route before without success, hence my question on the forum that maybe there was another angle to approach the problem. Anyway it is not an urgent matter, just me wondering about other ways at getting at the cause of a problem and providing a solution. Rgds Peter
