We have a test and production data library, we have a separate journal for each that fill journal receivers in their respective libraries. In TEST our system managed receivers always start at sequence 1 when a new receiver is attached, in production the sequence number continues from the previous receivers sequence.
I have prompted the CHGJRN command in both libraries and the parameters all default the same including the Sequence Option SEQOPT which is *CONT by default.
When I issue the CHGJRN in Test manually, the sequence number in the new receiver continues from the last receiver exactly how I would expect it to. When the SYSTEM switches receivers it resets it to 1 again.
Is there a system setting associated with the Journal in Test that overries the default *CONT on the SEQOPT?
Any help would be appreciated.
