CA Spool

Issue/Introduction

Under z/OS 2.2, the CA Spool web interface runs as a native CGI gateway program under the z/OS Apache HTTP server. This server is part of the z/OS 2.2 base product. When the Apache web server is started it spawns several other tasks. The z/OS STOP command against the main task does not shutdown all the tasks.

Environment

Release:
Component: CSPOOL

Resolution

When the Apache Web interface is started it issues the following message:

CRIHS0001I IHS {0} is active. {1} {2}:{3} {4}:{5}. Use jobname {6} for console commands.

See the IBM documentation for reference about this message.
In the below example, the CA Spool Web started task is named WEBESF4. When it is started it spawns the tasks below:

Jobname  Stepname
WEBESF45 STEP1   
WEBESF44 STEP1   
WEBESF41 *OMVSEX 
WEBESF44 STEP1   
WEBESF42 STEP1   
WEBESF43 STEP1   
WEBESF45 STEP1   
WEBESF4  WEBESF4 

The following message is issued:

CRIHS0001I IHS xxxxxxx.CA.COM is active. 67371185 *:nnnn unspecified :-1. Use jobname WEBESF44 for console commands.

To stop all WEBESF4x tasks at once the command P WEBESF44 must be issued. WEBESF44 is the jobname indicated in the message CRIHS0001I for console commands.
