IMS Connect considerations following server recovery
After InDoubt and InFlight work completes, the product server shuts down. A new application server configured for that system is then started up to accept new work. Special considerations must be taken if you are using IMS™ Connect after recovering to an alternate system.
After server recovery is completed, IMS Connect starts, but is not usable without some manual intervention. On the current IMS Connect WTOR perform the following commands nn,viewhws followed by nn,viewhwsnn,opends XXX where XXX is the IMS subsystem name displayed in the result of the nn,viewhws query. The IMS datastore needs to reflect 'active' status, as is shown in the following example:
*17 HWSC0000I *IMS CONNECT READY* IMSCONN R 17,VIEWHWS IEE600I REPLY TO 17 IS;VIEWHWS HWSC0001I HWS ID=IMSCONN Racf=N HWSC0001I Maxsoc=100 Timeout=12000 HWSC0001I Datastore=IMS Status=ACTIVE HWSC0001I Group=IMSGROUP Member=IMSCONN HWSC0001I Target Member=IMSA HWSC0001I Port=9999 Status=ACTIVE HWSC0001I No active Clients HWSC0001I Port=LOCAL Status=ACTIVE HWSC0001I No active Clients
After completing the required manual intervention, IMS Connect is ready to handle new work on this server.
