Batch job stuck in aborting state?

» close window

The Question is:

A batch job has been in Aborting state for 4 days. I cannot find it's
 associated process (so I can kill it), and cannot delete the entry.  How can I
 get rid of the batch job ?
I have not found an answer to this in FAQ, or
in different searches on DSN. Your help would be appreciated.

The Answer is :

  You will probably end up restarting the queue manager to clear this.
  (Pending a restart, you could widen the number of slots in the queue
  and simply leave this job latent until a restart is convenient.)
  Please also move to at least OpenVMS Alpha V7.1-2, or to V7.2-1.
  (A number of fixes were incorporated in these releases.)
