How do I set up a job to end a LCKW and keep it running.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Hello,

A LCKW job is locked waiting for the object to be released from a different job. Once the job sees that the object it is trying to reach is free the job keeps going. If the object it is waiting for is constantly locked by another process you may want to go into the log of this job and find the exact object the LCKW is waiting on and see what process or program is holding the object.

    Hi, Adding to Tpinky's answer :- Eventually a job may receive an "unable to allocate object" message (the amount of time before this occurs can vary depending on the type of object being accessed). When this happens, the message will need to be answered - Is this what you need to happen automatically? This can be acheived by using the system reply list (WRKSYSRPLE). In the long term it would be better to resolve the cause of the lock wait situation (will probably mean some changes to your application software). Regards, Martin Gilbert.
