    There appear to be messages queued to the above terminals and this takes tracks from the scratch queue.  To delete these queue messages, do:

    /PURGEPG,T=C7Q001  

     

    for each of the terminals.  It is also strongly recommended that you do ERST type starts of CA7ONL to clear any queued messages (see the CA 7 Best Practices Guide).

     

    You can also do a DMPQ type shutdown of CA 7 (/SHUTDOWN,Z5) -- make sure you get the message QUEUES SUCCESSFULLY UNLOADED and then you can enlarge the scratch queue and then do a MOVQ type start of CA7ONL (making sure to get the   QUEUES SUCCESSFULLY LOADED message).

     

    If you have further questions on this procedure, please open a support ticket in Support Online and we will be glad to help.
