Reply with quote

Hi,

I have COBOL IMS DC application program ready in IMS region. The MFS, ACB, Transaction and Programs are initialized in IMS region. The transaction got invoked and I could enquire the data on the screen.

Then i had the changes in COBOL IMS DC program. I have compiled the changed CObol IMS program and the new load module is not getting refreshed into IMS region.

Please suggest on how to refresh the load module of program into IMS region.

Is the any IMS command to refresh the load module?
Like.. /TEST MFS for refreshing format.

Thanks
Kiran

We do not want to bring the IMS down and Up every time the new load module created. The load module is not refreshing for any program.

Is there any IMS Installation setting which need to be changed to Auto refresh when the load module get refreshed?

Also,

My transaction has got QCT of 5 (messages queued), I could not reset the&QCT by stopping pgm&trans + starting pgm&trans.

Eeven /DEQUEUE TRAN tranid command not enabled. Are there any settings in IMS Installation process to activate /DEQUEUE TRAN comman??

Thanks
Kiran

Have you tried stopping/starting the MPR that processes the transaction?

Please let know the procedure to Stop/satart MPR. Using IMS commands or TSO Console commands?

Please let me know the procedure in detail which can help me to do the right thing to refresh the load modules in IMS region.

Everything you could possibly need will be doucumntest in the IMS manuals - probably under some tile that includes the word "User". Except...locally grown utilities to hide some of the technicalities or tailor the commands to your environment will not be documented ther - if anywhere. Your DBA should be able to assist you if your colleagues cannot.

Hi,



We had ran F LLA,REFRESH via console but the load module did not get refreshed. The IMS is still pointing to old module.

Please suggest if we need any setting changes in IMS control region jcl's which could enable load module refresh using F LLA,REFRESH command.

We are using APF Library.



Thanks

Kiran

As far as I remember, if you don't perform an "online change" the old contents from the ACBLIB, FMTLIB, and MODBLKS will be loaded.

What you exactly mean "perform an "online change" "?
Please let us know in some detail on what changes we need to do.

We may be getting a bit off track here. The original question from the TS was about how to get IMS to pick up a fresh version of a recompiled application program.

Stopping and then Starting the message processing region should be all that is needed to take care of that. i.e. you don't need to bring the IMS control region up and down, but just the dependent region that the application runs in.

Don, i never said something about bringing the control region down.
The TS talked about MFS, ACB, so to say to IMS hey there is new stuff around, an "online change" is needed.

Agree, it was the TS who mentioned in a subsequent post "We do not want to bring the IMS down and Up every time the new load module created. The load module is not refreshing for any program. "

That, and some of the other posts made it sound like the ACB gen etc was already taken care of, and they just want to ensure that the new version of the application program gets picked up.

I forgot to mention that an "online change" doesn't need that IMS has to be stopped/brought down.
