then the commands will remain in the recovery file.  
After waiting for a period of time, if no response is received, the commands are 
left in the Recovery File and the sending system stops waiting to avoid storage problems.

Issue TSS REM(*CPFRECV) CPFNODE(node) to clear commands for that node
out of the CPF recovery file.
The other option (besides removing by node) is removing by date. The command
is TSS REMOVE(*CPFRECV) UNTIL(mm/dd/yy). This will delete all records up to,
and including, the specified date.
