Issue/Introduction

In the process of shutting down our Test LPAR, when we issued the "P sarxms" command to stop the XMS Started Task, it would not come down and had to be cancelled.

The following was captured from the SYSLOG:

Environment

Release : 14.0

Component : CA View

Resolution

The command "/P SARXMS" is a quiesce command that terminates the cross-memory task when the last user ends his or her session. 

If no users are in session when the cross-memory online task is quiesced, the task terminates immediately.

With that, there can be a delay in the task coming down, if users are still in session.

If you want to bring a SARXMS task down immediately, regardless of user sessions, that would be done with "/F sarxms,SHUTDOWN". 

Also, command "/F sarxms, CANCEL ALL" will cancel all users from the task.
