With XCOM for z/OS, how do I Stop a Transfer? I Tried to Delete it, but it did not Work. Should I used Cancel or Terminate?
XCOM Data Transport for z/OS
The right modify command must be issued
One way to do this is to SUSPEND the transfer and then you will be able to work with it.
Otherwise, these modify commands are available.
NOTE: This only works if the transfer is locally initiated. Remotely initiated transfers must be stopped on the partner side.
Depending on how you want to stop the transfer and whether you want to restart it again, there are several different commands you may use: These are all MODIFY commands. In each case XCOM refers to the name of the XCOM server started task- the name you use to start the XCOM server:
* - applies to all transfers
destname - applies to all transfers to the specified destination lu, ipname or address
Immed - cancel the transfer in progress and requeue
Purge - abort the transfer and remove it from the pending queue
SUSP - Suspend the transfer, saving the status (Can be RESUMED later)
nnnnnn - request number - removes the transfer from the pending queue.
This does NOT work for active transfers.
luname - SNA luname only
nnnnnn - request number
Immediately stops and purges an active transfer.
To avoid problems like this in the future, apply the latest maintenance on XCOM for z/OS
NOTE: To find the request number for a transfer, issue the following command. destname is optional. The output is written to the XCOMLOG:
