Trying to issue a MARK STATUS PROD for a program in IDEAL receiving error message:
IDADXSSP02 - Definition in Use, please try later
IDADXSSP24 "PROD" program in use, please try later

If the program is not in use and there is no valid enqueue you can use the DEQUEUE command to dequeue the program:
DEQUEUE PROGRAM xxxxxxxx VERSION nnn SYSTEM sys
