Resolution

From this message: "OPS7914T SSMv2 AUDIT: STCTBL.taskname UPDATED by OPSOSF SSMSHUT CURRENT_STATE=DOWN" we can see it was the SSMSHUT REXX program that set the CURRENT_STATE of this resource to DOWN. SSMSHUT takes this action when the resource mode is PASSIVE or INACTIVE.
From SSMSHUT comments: "For any PASSIVE or INACTIVE resource force the current state to it's DOWN state (even though the resource isn't actually DOWN). "
