E1: KER: E1 Services Fail To Start When The ICUDT32E.dat File Is Being Journaled

(Doc ID 654345.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 14, 2017

Applies to:

JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Tools - Version 8.98 and later
IBM i on POWER Systems

Symptoms

The Tools Release has recently been upgraded and EnterpriseOne services are successfully started.  All application tests work.  After testing, E1 services are stopped, a backup is done but when trying to restart services; services will not start.  It is determine that when MIMIX backs up the system, it automatically starts journaling on the system library (ex: E812SYS, E900SYS) directory in the IFS. The problem lies when journaling is started on the following file in the IFS:


If journaling is started on this file PORTTEST fails and there are problems with starting services, etc. If journaling is stopped on this file then everything returns to normal. Here are the steps to duplicate:

If more than one statement number is shown, the program is an optimized ILE program. Optimization does not allow a single statement number to be determined. If *N is shown as a value, it means the real value was not available.
