I am facing an issue regarding file open failed in CICS.
what happened as follows:
Batch afterhour processing completes, batch job using EXTI call CICS program to reset file status to CLOSED/ENABLE
ADRDSSU ran to backup files into tapes
Online transaction tried to open the file, but failed, the file status has been set to CLOSED/UNABLE
Below is the parameter we used in ADRDSSU
I am considering two solutions:
1. Set the files status to OPEN/ENABLED once afterhour processing completes, but my concern is whether using too much storage (buffer, data table, etc) in a short period will cause any issue? Or any potenical risk?
2. Reset the file status to CLOSED/ENABLE after ADRDSSU, there are too many files which I don't want to reset all of them, so is there any utility/job can check the file status in CICS, from that I can capture which file status is UNABLE, so I can create a job to automatically reset the file status.
Guys, just wondering anyone can suggest:
"is there any utility/job can check the file status in CICS, from that I can capture which file status is UNABLE, so I can create a job to automatically reset the file status. "
But usually that is not necessary as during the start up of CICS region this is already been taken care. So as suggested by Bill,please take that information to CICS Admin and then find out what went wrong.
