Issue/Introduction

We have a REXX that kicks off to swap the OPSLOG whenever the log approaches wrap condition message is generated.   On occasion we get a RC=144 from this process.

Resolution

The 144 error indicates " A SETLIVE command failed because of an internal lock failure."   

This can be caused by issuing the SETLIVE(opslog) before the RESET(opslog) command has completed.   Depending on the size of the log the RESET command can take several seconds.   The recommendation is, therefore, to add an OPSWAIT in between the RESET and the SETLIVE commands.  The format is:

      a=OPSWAIT(n)    where n is a time value in seconds.  

In the CA OPS/MVS Event Management sample member **.CCLXSAMP(OPS34450) the OPSWAIT value is set to 30 seconds.  

Once an event such as this has occurred, verify that the secondary OPSLOG is still active via the OPSLOG Control Panel (=4.13).   The following commands can be used to activate and make live the secondary OPSLOG:

 A - Activate a defined OPSLOG                        
 C - Create and allocate a defined OPSLOG             
 D - Delete a defined OPSLOG                          
 I - Deactivate a currently active OPSLOG             
 L - Make a currently active OPSLOG the "live" OPSLOG 
 N - Create a new OPSLOG definition                   
 R - Reset an active OPSLOG.                          
 S - Select an OPSLOG definition for detail display
