CEMT NEWCOPY or PHASEIN request fails with NOT FOR HOLD PROG

Troubleshooting


Problem

You receive message NOT FOR HOLD PROG when you enter a CEMT SET PROGRAM(progname) NEWCOPY or PHASEIN request for a program. CEMT INQ PROGRAM(progname) shows a non-zero RESCOUNT for this program.

Cause

The program was loaded using an EXEC CICS LOAD with the HOLD option. NEWCOPY and PHASEIN requests cannot be specified for a program loaded with the HOLD option.

Resolving The Problem

Enter CECI RELEASE PROGRAM (progname) until the RESCOUNT is zero, and a subsequent NEWCOPY and PHASIN requests will succeed. Each CECI RELEASE PROGRAM(progname) request decrements the RESCOUNT by 1.
