Request is COMPLETE on the base Alchemist, but shows as WAIT-D in Node access with DISABLED entity.


In order get rid of this request the following steps must be followed:

  1. Rerun the original request (if this has not already been done) to ensure that all members of the request are superseded.

  • To remove the request from the NCL dataset, it will be necessary to close down Alchemist temporarily. However, before doing this, run a ZBBVPUP to definitively determine the member name -

So in the above example:./ PRINT INFILE('xxxx.NCL') LIST(DIRECTORY)./ NAME('INV?040107104403*').
  • Delete the member by changing the ZBBVPUP input from PRINT to DELETE, and using the specific NAME from the PRINT output (or if only one entity is returned in the PRINT, you can leave the masking in place) :
     ./ DELETE INFILE('xxxx.NCL') LIST(DIRECTORY)./ NAME('INV?040107104403*').
