There are old CA Batch Processor IDs in the system. When attempting to run a new process, the process tries to pick up where the old process left off.
Additionally the following message my be encountered:
BPA0022E: BPID IS FLAGGED INCOMPLETE - RESTART IS REQUIRED.
How to delete rows from the PTI.BPLOG_0203 table to remove old entries?
Release: R19, R20
Db2 for z/OS
Go to the Execution Display Panel (option 3) from the CA RC/Migrator Main Menu. On that screen use the filtering fields to identify the BPID of the job that you want to delete. Having identified the job place a "D' next to the entry and press enter.
The restart job entry is then deleted from the table and display.
See : Monitor Strategy Analysis and Batch Processor Execution
Another way is to modify the BPID in the JCL .CONTROL parm by at least 1 character which will just add a new row in the the BPLOG restart table. The user can also override the restart row by adding this statement:
DB2 SSID ==> DT32 Strat Creator ==> BASLU02 Timestamp ==> *
Status ==> * Strat Name ==> BBPFBRMR Type ==> *
--- Strategy ----
BPID Creator Name St T Syncpoint-#
__ AUTHID.USERID.BPCODE-AUTHIDS AUTHID QUICKM NC S 960 2015
The restart id above is AUTHID.USERID.BPCODE-AUTHIDS
In the batch job change the AUTHIDS to AUTHID1 and a new row will be created
when the job is executed ignoring the old record.
//BPIOPT DD *
.CONTROL BPID(AUTHID.USERID.BPCODE-AUTHID1) +
.OPTION NOERRORS NOSQLERRORS RETRY(01) NOBINDERRORS +

CA Batch Processor - .RESTART OVERRIDE Command with DELETE Option
There is no current way to mass delete the restart rows using a batch job however there is the ability
to use the block line command "DD" instead of "D" to delete blocks of displayed records.
DD - Delete a "Block" or group of consecutively displayed rows from the log. Enter a DD in the
line command area of the first and last rows that are to be deleted. The DD commands must be entered in pairs.
