OPSMVS : JES2 not stopping when using STOPJES2

Implementing the supplied Rexx STOPJES2 to shutdown JES2 during System Shutdown, it can happen that the following problem occurs: 

 JES2 is always waiting for 1 OSF SERVER to return JOBID:
M C040000 PSYS     20207 11:14:42.00          00000000 *$HASP715 ADDRESS SPACES WAITING FOR RETURN JOBID 466
D                                         466 00000000           ASID     JOBNAME
D                                         466 00000000           -------- --------
E                                         466 00000000           01DD     OPSOSF
even if there are multiple OSF servers up in the System.

How to solve the problem?

In general it's important to usually set OSFGETJOBID to YES for example in order to use the OPSUBMIT function to submit a batch job directly from an OPS/REXX program or to use a SEND EMAIL Rexx to send email from within a Rexx. In addition, starting servers as SUB=MSTR requires to have OSFGETJOBID set to YES.

That said, below the steps to perform in order to correctly implement the supplied STOPJES2 Rexx:

1) Code a new Rexx exec (lets call it JES2DOWN)

/* JES2DOWN rexx that sets OSFGETJOBID then redrives STOPJES2 logic*/
SET = OPSPARM('SET','OSFGETJOBID','NO')     /* This turns off the JOBID*/
"OI STOPJES2"                                                      /* This re-drives stopping JES2 without a JOBID assigned*/
                                                                                /* to the 'OI' request to bring JES2 down*/

2) Assign the new JES2 UP/DOWN action to perform in the JES2 STCTBL_ACT


3) if present, remove the OSFGETJOBID setting from within the SSMSHUT Rexx because it doesn't need to be done twice.
