Whenever i try to restart this step using 'procstepname.stepname' method, it doesn't seem to be working.  Probably because of the if condition check or the condition check itself.

I would love to hear from the mainframe experts here, how can i restart a proc step which is having condition check or that falls through 'IF'

I'm assuming that IMB0540 refers to a previous step in the same PROC.  If you try to restart on that step, the condition evaluates as FALSE because it refers to a previous step that was not executed during the restart.

Try changing your IF statement to:

//IFCKDP IF (IMB0540.RC EQ 0 | ¬IMB0540.RUN) THEN

Open in new window


I haven't seen the rest of your job stream but I'm assuming that IMB0540 usually executes unconditionally.

yes you are right.
How can i restart STEP2 that is having condition checks.
//STEP1     EXEC PGM=ABCD ...
//.........
....

//STEP2     EXEC PGM=IMB0588,con=(0,NE,STEP1) 
..........

Open in new window


Will it get restarted or fail due to the conditin check?

I assume that you're talking about the COND parameter.  Since STEP1 was not executed, the COND parameter evaluates to false and the step will be executed.
