Abruptly stops the queue and returns control to the system. Any jobs
that cannot be restarted are aborted immediately.
The /QUEUE qualifier is optional, but you must specify the /RESET
Requires manage (M) access to the queue.
Specifies the name of the queue you want to reset.
The STOP/QUEUE/RESET command stops the queue as soon as the system
receives the command. The queue manager requests termination for all
executing jobs, but aborts or requeues executing jobs without waiting
for termination status to be received. Current jobs that can be
restarted are requeued for processing. Current jobs that cannot be
restarted are aborted and must be resubmitted for processing. (Print
jobs are restartable by default. Batch jobs are restartable if
submitted with the SUBMIT/RESTART command.)
Use the START/QUEUE command to restart the queue.
For autostart queues, the STOP/QUEUE/RESET command stops the queue and
makes it inactive for autostart, so it will not be automatically
started. For this reason, you might use this command to prevent an
autostart queue from being automatically restarted when a printing
device fails and needs to be serviced. Use the START/QUEUE command to
reactivate the queue for autostart.
$ INITIALIZE/QUEUE/AUTOSTART_ON=MYNODE::LPAO/START LPA0
THE INITIALIZE/QUEUE command in this example creates an autostart
output queue named LPA0. The /START qualifier activates the queue for
autostart, and the ENABLE AUTOSTART/QUEUES command causes the queue to
Suppose the printer LPA0:: runs out of paper. The STOP/QUEUE/RESET
command abruptly stops the queue LPA0. The current print job stops
immediately and is requeued. The STOP/QUEUE/RESET command also makes
the queue inactive for autostart, so it will not be restarted while the
printer's paper is being resupplied.
After the printer is loaded with paper, the START/QUEUE command makes
the queue active for autostart and allows the queue manager to
automatically start it again.
$ STOP/QUEUE/RESET TEXBATCH
The STOP/QUEUE/RESET command in this example stops the batch queue
TEXBATCH. Any current jobs that were submitted with the /RESTART
qualifier are requeued for processing when the queue is restarted.
Users might want to resubmit current jobs that were not originally
submitted with the /RESTART qualifier.
