Some IMS Transactions Not Running

Posted: 19:00:00, Sunday, Aug 6, 2006   Expiration: 19:00:00, Tuesday, Aug 8, 2006  

A problem with this weekend's upgrade is preventing some 3270 transactions from starting. An error message will be displayed when an enduser attempts to use one of the affected transactions. Expected resolution by 10 AM.

Update: 08/08/06 at 11:04 AM
The Software AG Product upgrade was backed out around 7 PM last night. This morning, users of a couple transactions were experiencing DB2 timestamp errors. I cleared out the global buffer pool of any old residual object code to take care of that problem. If there are any other problems, please report them to the Help Desk so they can be properly recorded and handled.


Users with IMS transactions on the DoIT mainframe may have trouble using them this morning. An upgrade occurred on Sunday that can affect transactions developed with the Natural programming language. There have been some problems. The techs are working on resolving this problem.
