Hello Team,

If a COBOL program is not able to get compiled in my system because of some problem, is there any other wayfrom where one can get it compiled and run in my system?

depends on the problem

why don't you tell us what is the problem?

and yes, a load module can be brought-in from outside
(e.g. vendor software)
and run on the system.

Do you know any tool as such just for my knowledge?

why don't you ask your sys-ops people?
they would be aware of such tools.

is the LPAR damaged? maybe from un-authorized programs??????

If you get it done by "another resource", how would you use it - keeping in mind the LPAR you need it on, is anyways "down"?

Did you really mean "LPAR is down", or you meant to say the version-control tool (which might be used to compile, link-edit) is not-functioning because of maitainence activities?

Hello,

If the lpar is "down" how do you extract the source to be compiled elsewhere?

How do you reload the executable(s)?

You need to provide a much better explanation of what really is wrong.

Well managed systems will not allow "stuff" to be dropped on the machine and run. . .

Yes this is the one situation.

The code back up has already been taken to notepad.

Hello,

If you have the source "off" of the down system and you have another system with the same compiler environment, where are you stuck?

After a week the lpar is still out of service? Scary. . .

what about

the infrastructure needed to compile a program ... like

level of the compiler and libraries at the <backup> location

source libraries containing the copybooks

object libraries containing the <subroutines> to be linked with Your program

what if the program uses DB2

if nobody in Your organization planned for the <disaster recovery> of the development environment

well... that nobody should face his/her/their responsibilities icon_cool.gif

little can be done from a forum point of view.

This is very different than saying "LPAR is down".

I had been to a shop, where the Change-Man will not be functioning for an hour or so for maintenance activities. Mostly, the working-hours at "off-shores" are "off-hours" compared to the "on-site" office-hours and once in a while you run in to this.

We used an "easy-edit" SET-UP at times, to get the compilation done, check with your site-support group or some 'senior', if they can help you with some such set-up already in use at your shop.

OTOH, it is very site-specific. And note that, this did not get the load-module in to the "change-man specific" libs, where it was eventually needed, so I, for one, gave up on it after some time.

Hello,

It is now nearly 2 weeks that CM has been "down".

I suggest getting this fixed immediately is more important than getting one or a few programs re-compiled in such a way they might well be unusable.

If this (contacting CA Sjupport) has not already happened, Someone needs to contact CA Sujpport for help. . .
