    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: Failed endpoint purge is not retried    *
    *                      when endpoint restarts.                 *

    ****************************************************************
    When a purge job command is issued for a batch job, the job is
    first purged from the Job Scheduler data.  Then, the purge
    command is forwarded to the endpoint which will purge the data
    on the endpoint.
    If this purge on the endpoint fails to happen, an entry is
    made in the JOBREDOLIST table.  This contains information
    indicating that the purge failed, and what the endpoint is.
    When the endpoint restarts, purges in this table should be
    retried so old data is not left.  However, a code problem
    exists where this entry was not being read properly which
    causes the retry to not occur.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A code update has been made to properly read that an endpoint
    purge must be retried.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 9.0.0.5, 8.5.5.13 and Compute Grid 8.0.0.6
