I have a BMP to update IMS DB segments. I take checkpoint after regular intervals. I used xpediter to Test my BMP. Then i made the program to abend after taking 5 checkpoints. the Program abended as expected. When i tried to restart the Program in xpediter by including RESTART=LAST in the exec of JCl , I found that the restart save area is only spaces . Hence the program didnt restart. Its starting processing from the beginning. The status code of the checkpoint and restart call are all spaces. There is no info to identify the problem.
Can anybody explain what is the problem in that.
Is that anything i forgot to include.
