    ...or rather haven't seen VSE in 3 decades, and never learned it that well to begin with.

     

    I'm commencing CA Dynam/T for VSE installation.  I've submitted job CAINSTC0 but was pointing to a 3590 tape device instead of a VTAPE, which it didn't like.

     

     

    I believe I cancelled the job, but it still displays as processing in the rdr queue:

     

     

    d rdr,ca*                                                         

    AR 0015 1C39I COMMAND PASSED TO VSE/POWER                         

    F1 0001 1R46I  READER QUEUE   P D C S  CARDS BU                   

    F1 0001 1R46I  CAINSTC0 00899 3 * A       21   PART=BG FROM=(WARD)

     

     

    Can't figure out how to get rid of it prior to resubmitting while pointing to a vtape.  I even did an IPL, but it was still there afterwards.  Maybe it resubmitted itself after the IPL and left me in the same situation.

     

    No active messages.  It's running in BG, which I've issued a PFLUSH and a CANCEL BG,FORCE command against.  It appears to cancel, but still displays.

    I suspect the ON $CANCEL GOTO user-label routine may be playing a part:

    // ON $CANCEL GOTO RELTAP

    When you saw

    BG-0000 1I00D  READY FOR
    COMMUNICATIONS.           

     

    did you respond 0 (zero) then hit enter?  To eob this?

    Just some additional information.

     

    When you see pid-nnnn   (a '-' between the pid and nnnn, it means it may be waiting for a response.

     

    it could be F2-0074  or N3-0046.   In your case it was BG-0000.   This is waiting for a 0 enter.

     

    With CICS you could do 74 CEMT I .......   PID then valid cics command.

     

     

    If you have more questions we can open a case to discuss further
