IT Jungle: How to automatically answer IBM i record locks

itj-logoIT Jungle just published my latest tip on auto-answering IBM i record lock messages, where I answered the following reader question.

My Power i system is driving me crazy with RPG1218 record lock messages. Because of the way one of our applications was written, we receive RPG1218 messages several times a day. The record lock only lasts a minute. When we enter a retry on the locked record, the system is always able to update the record. Is there any way to auto-answer these record locks?

 

In the tip, I go through the drill to get your system monitoring software to automatically send out ‘R’=Reply messages to record locks on your IBM i machine.

I also added another technique to my procedure for wiping your Power i system before returning it to a leasing company or selling it.
