    Custom job never finishes.

    We have a problem with the custom jobs. Take for example p_priv_01. It runs fine, and the sql generates a printout, but the batch never shows completion. The batch log (abc50_p_priv_01.00053) for job 2336 in ABC50 (ABCSUPER/ACPSUPER20, port 6515) on hickory server shows it still running although a finished print report shows up in the ABC50 print folder (test-priv01-srf).

    The log shows "end" at the bottom, but I notice in comparing to standard Aleph job batch logs, I don't see the "Wrote Z100 record with rec-key: ######" at the bottom. Would that cause the batch to hang up and never show success? Do we have to include a reference to that process in the custom batch?

    Does the job continue to show up in util c/1? and in ps -ef | grep priv_01 ?

    p_priv_01 ends with these lines:


    while p_com_02 ends with these:


    I suggest that, as a test, you replace the last three lines in p_priv_01 with the two shown above from p_com_02.
