Most Base KSH Scripts Report "false" Failures (Doc ID 2764673.1)

Last updated on APRIL 05, 2021

Applies to:

Oracle Retail Merchandising System - Version 16.0.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Most of the base KSH batch scripts will report failures even though the current run of the script was successful. This is due to a 'grep' command that searches the batch log for 'Abort' based on the current run PID. However, the same PID can be used many times during the day.

If a completely different batch uses the PID and fails earlier in the day, then the current run of the KSH will fail. Here is an example for a PROD batch log:

Tue Oct 20 10:13:14 Program: saimptlogi: PID=XXXXXXXXX: Started by default user
Tue Oct 20 10:13:14 Program: saimptlogi: PID=XXXXXXXXX: Aborted in init

Tue Oct 20 12:13:18 Program: salesuploadarch: PID=XXXXXXXXX: salesuploadarch.ksh - Started by default user
Tue Oct 20 12:16:01 Program: salesuploadarch: PID=XXXXXXXXX: CORESVC_SALES_UPLOAD_SQL.ARCHIVE_RECORDS - Successfully Completed SVC_ARCHIVE
Tue Oct 20 12:16:01 Program: salesuploadarch: PID=XXXXXXXXX: Errors encountered. See error file

The run of salesuploadarch ran fine, but the 'grep' hit on the 'Abort' of saimptlogi earlier and thus causes batch to fail.
