Hi,

My ID got locked, so I want to cancel a job which is still running in my SPOOL from another MF ID. Is it possible, if yes please let me know how it could be done.

Thanks
Tijo

Yes it is possible, but it all depends on the security that has been set up at your site.

Why not ask the owner of the other user id to cancel the job and see what happens.

In fact, the time it has taken you to post here, you could have found out already.

But in all the shops that I had worked on, it was set so that no user is allowed to cancel jobs of others.

Is that the default setting?

Expat , as per me we can not purge the job when we are not owner of the job (Guess some authorities would have been allocated to the few IDs who can do this !) .

We instead asked Operator group to do the same in such cases ..

As I said, it all depends on how the security is setup.

Some places I could not cancel another job of someone in the same group as me, in others it was restriced to only others members of the same group could cancel jobs or user ids within the same group, and when I worked in Prod Supp, I could cancel anything.

If you have other LPAR where you can log-in with your RACF ID, you may try below job to "unlock" your ID.
Code:
//JOBNAME JOB (U),'UNLOCK',PRTY=2,CLASS=0,                         
//         MSGCLASS=X,NOTIFY=&SYSUID,USER=RACFID,PASSWORD=PASSWORD
//*                                                               
/*ROUTE XEQ laprname                                                   
//*                                                               
//SDSF     EXEC PGM=SDSF                                           
//ISFOUT   DD SYSOUT=*                                             
//ISFIN    DD *                                                   
ST                                                                 
SET DISPLAY ON                                                     
SET CONFIRM OFF                                                   
PRE   RACFID                                                       
OWNER *                                                           
FIND  RACFID                                                       
++P                                                               
/*                                                                 
//*                                                               

Here in "/*ROUTE XEQ laprname" is the name of node (lpar) where your ID is "locked".

But before using this job, re-read what Expat has said.

Hopefully, there has not been a runaway task on the system for the last 36+ hours. . . icon_smile.gif
