Root Cause: It can occurs when some launches are reusing numproc of launches that had been already executed.


You can solve the issue using uxpursb command which is available for all Dollar Universe 5.x versions.

The Company must be running to execute the command uxpursb (to access data) but the Engines corresponding to the target Area ( argument) must be stopped.

· : Dollar Universe Area. Format: 1 character, must be A or I or S or X.
· : Dollar Universe target node.
· : Target date after which the data will not be purged. This date should be provided in the format "YYYYMMDD".
Only the fact that the date contains 8 numbers is verified.
· : Optional. It can contain one of the 4 following values: LIST_NOALL, LIST_ALL, PURGE_NOALL, PURGE_ALL.
LIST_NOALL is used by default.
o LIST: List mode only. No Launch is purged.
o PURGE: Real purge mode. The purged Launches are listed. All production files are purged synchronously with the Launch base.
o NOALL means that records in the Launch base which are not also present in the job monitor nor in the execution history will not be purged, whatever their date.
o ALL means that these same data are purged on the date of their first Launch attempt.
