Over 400.000 Spoolfiles in three days

32 Views

Hello together,

we have several V6R1 partiotions. Since a few days I have on two partitions a lot of Spoolfiles with the following content:

Switch to user QSECOFR failed

This is the only text in the spoolfile.

File        User        User Data   Sts   Pages   Copies  Form Type   Pty

How you can see, this spoolfiles came from a job named QPRTJOB.

This Job is generated from the system for DRDA connection and other things.

Dokumentation for this job:

http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/iseries/v5r3/index.jsp?topic=/rzalu/rzaluqprtjob.htm

or here:

http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=nas145751e5b298957558625713b0053b33e

When I use the command:

wrkjob JOB(474754/QSECOFR/QPRTJOB)

I can see the following in the joblog:

Job . . :   QPRTJOB       User . . :   QSECOFR       Number . . . :   474754                                                                                
Job log not displayed or listed because job has ended.

But the job is still running and creating 2 or 3 spoolfile every second. 24 hours a day.

This is a lot.

BTW:

I have installed PTF 09279.

We use 620 Kernel with Level 314.

We have application Servers with Kernel Level 315.

How can I find the source of this running serverjob?

best regards,
