Issue/Introduction

Description:

DIS OUT ALL STATUS shows many OUTPUT members in CRTIN status. What does this mean and can these members be deleted?

Solution:

Output members in CRTIN status means the OUTPUT was in the process of being created but something occurred such as an ABEND or a line drop in the middle of a CA Ideal session. For example: If an IDEAL program transfers control to a COBOL program and never returns, the output is never closed since CA Ideal does not get control back, so the output will remain in CRTIN status.

To delete these members, you can issue the command ALTER OUTPUT nnnn DISPOSITION RELEASE to change the status to READY. These OUTPUT members can then be deleted.
