I had to shut down the AS400 couple days ago to replace the power backup. Used PWRDWNSYS command. This server has not been shut down for a year or so now. The shut down was not flawless it took a very long time. After restart it did quiet a few recovery processes. It finally came back on in about a half an hour. Since then I have QDBSRVXR2 running constently between 70%-80% which puts the 400 aroung 90%-98%. I dag around and found out it is a cross reference server process, but the 400 used to run around 10%-20%. It has been about 3-4 days now. Could anybody brighten me about this what to do or what not to do. QDBSRVXR is CNDW. QDBSRVXR2 is RUN. Thank you very much in advance. Greatly appreciate any comment.

    Although the system hasn't been powered down, how often has it been taken down to restricted state during the past year? What model is it? What's the OS VRM? When you powered down, was the system quiesced first? (I.e., brought to restricted state or at least had its server functions ended first.) Tom

    I am running V6R1M0. It has not been taken down to my knowledge to a restricted state. Although took over this machine about 5 month ago. I was informed nothing like that was done prior to me coming on board. Nothing was ended, just used the PWRDWNSYS command and chose not to restart. AS400 Type 9406. I might have to do this all over again as soon the replacement PowerWare is here, so I need to be ready. I think this info will fill in your blanks for now. Thanks. Csaba

    According to this document the RCLSTG is hung and an IPL may fix the problem. It also states this may be the result of a secondary problem and it may persist. (Thats real helpful...) Tom is right - it is usually recommended that you bring the system to a restricted state before the power down. End any running user processes, then ENDSBS *ALL *CNTRLD from the console. I generally run a RCLSTG with the system in a restricted state - although in your case that may be problematic - or at least take a very long time. I would be calling IBM on this, assuming you have software maintenance. Regards Mike

    I ended up doing a manual IPL. The 400 was non responsive after the second command. First ENDSBS SBS(*ALL) OPTION(*IMMED) , then RCLSTG SELECT(*DBXREF). So I took it out of normal operation and manual shut down. After it came back, was not too time consuming, did a RCLSTG SELECT(*DBXREF) agagin and it started to rebuilding the indexes. I had only a 113 libraries. Before all this I had download and apply a PTF specifically for this issue. Now everything is back to normal. Running like a champ under 25%. Thanks everyone. Csaba
