How do you remove a program from being resident?

I am trying to new copy a program, one of a series, using cemt do to a commarea change. All of the programs new copy except for one, which shows a resident count of one.

How do I remove it from residency?

RE: How do you remove a program from being resident?

The redident count of 1 usually means one of:

  • It is still in use by a running transaction
  • Some joker has done an EXEC CICS LOAD for it with the HOLD option. I you are sure that this is the case, and that no-one is using it, you can free it with CECI RELEASE PROGRAM(pgmname)
  • You have been stepping through it with a debugger like Xpediter. These normally load and lock the program to allow the debugger to hook in. Do an XPND (for Xpediter) or terminate your debugger properly.
Hope this helps


RE: How do you remove a program from being resident?

For 'redident' please read 'resident'

Of course, if it is in use by a long-running transaction you can always use the PHASEIN option, which NEWCOPYs the program but allows the existing running transaction(s) to complete using the old version.

Any new transactions will pick up the new version of your program.
