Your query has the answer. Cancel the job manually, if you have authorization. Or ask your OPs team to do it for you.

In the spool, place 'C' on the left of the job and hit ENTER. Like -

Code:
 C    SORTJCL  JOBxxxxx RACFIDxx     1 CC 0000    PRINT      J   605

A mild suggestion....
review Your standards and practices,
usually the "TIME=NOLIMIT" or "TIME=1440"
are not allowed on the testing environment,
they are allowed in production only after a thorough system test

regards

Hmmm... If that job still runs for 2 days, I wonder how much CPU time was wasted... icon_eek.gif

In such a scenario, OPs wont allow to run that long. Unless intimated beforehand NOT to cancel the job.

Morevoer, the original post says - due to some error in the coding. I assume this is a test environment (without testing they would not have moved to prod).

Hi,

For test JOBs you SUBmit, please avoid using NOLIMIT or 1440 for TIME parameter in future. It's not advisable.

Anuj has provided good guidance.

My suggestion is somewhat stronger:
Never use NOLIMIT or 1440 for TIME parameter.

By some means, you need to get the job canceled. Someone is available to deal with system problems. As suggested, call the help desk. If there is none, call operations or your manager.

Do not feel too badly - if your system was well configured, your job would have been "flushed" automatically when the 1440 was detected.
