Running CA IDMS mapping batch utility RHDCMPUT to process a map fails with error:
384108 E MODIFY OR DELETE OF MAP NOT ALLOWED. MAP IS CHECKED OUT
This can also occur when running RHDCMAP1.
Release : 19.0
Component : CA IDMS/DB
Both maps and ADS dialogs have a CHECKOUT and RELEASE facility to prevent multiple updates to the same entity from different users or batch and online. A map can have an explicit or implicit checkout. The explicit checkout is done in MAPC from the CHECKOUT option in the MODIFY menu item. An explicit checkout is only released by the RELEASE option in the MAPC MODIFY menu item. An implicit checkout is done when you start modifying a map. The implicit checkout is released after a successful compile. The error indicates that the map has a checkout so it cannot be processed. The checkout needs to be released first.
To release the checkout do one of the following:
For an explicit checkout, the user holding the checkout can go into MAPC and use the RELEASE option in the MODIFY menu item.
For an implicit checkout , he user holding the checkout can go into MAPC and either compile the map or use the RELEASE option in the MODIFY menu item.
Use transaction ADSL to list checkouts and then ADSM to release the checkout.
Turn on optional bit OPT00235 in RHDCOPTF. This will cause the ADS and mapping batch utilities to ignore the checkout flags. It is not recommended this option be left on permanently. Only turn this bit on for mass batch compiles and then turn it off again.
