Issue/Introduction

A Batch processor execution has terminated with these messages:

 BPA0144I: FINAL LOG RECORD WRITTEN FOR SUBSYSTEM ===> ssid.
*****  RESTART POINT ESTABLISHED AT SYNC VALUE         100  *****
*****  BATCH PROCESSOR INCOMPLETE WITH ERRORS    *****
 

What does this mean? What actions must be taken next?

 

 

Environment

Release: R19, R20
Component: RBP

Resolution

This means that CA Batch Processor had started executing some sort of script whether it be an RC/Migrator Analysis output or some other code. The code in question is using .SYNC statements which normally increment by 5 at each .SYNC statement as a normal convention. This particular execution has terminated with errors for some reason which will be seen in the job output.

The precise location of this problem can be found immediately after a line which will start with ".SYNC 100".

A restart point has been set in the CA Batch Processor restart table on this subsystem "ssid" at sync point 100. The job may be restarted after the root cause of the termination has been corrected. This can be done with a .RESTART SYNC card in the Batch Processor JCL. It will restart at SYNC point 100 in this case.
