Batch queue entry in aborting state?

» close window

The Question is:

I have a batch entry that will not exit the queue list.  It is in an aborting
 state.  I have tried del /ent command, but the entry remains.
How do you remove this entry without deleting the queue and recreating it?

The Answer is :

  A batch queue job entry that remains in aborting state typically
  indicates that the queue manager has not yet received the process
  termination message from the job controller on the node running
  the batch job.
  You will want to determine why the process is not exiting (or if
  it did exit, why the process exit was not reported to the queue
  manager), via examination of the process using ANALYZE/SYSTEM (SDA)
  or via a call to the Compaq Customer Support Center.
  If you use SDA, particularly look for open channels or other
  activities that can stall the process rundown processing.
  The STOP/QUEUE/RESET command may be of use, if you want to force
  the queue manager to resynchronize with the entry.
