TAA Tools

The Hold All  Output Queues command holds  all output queues in  one or
more  libraries  using generated  HLDOUTQ  system commands.    A single
output  queue name, a generic  name, or all output  queues may be held.
An ACTION  parameter allows  either *CHECK  or *HOLD.   HLDALLOUTQ  can
assist when  a full or partial shutdown  of the system is  needed.  You
must   have  both  *ALLOBJ   and  *JOBCTL  special   authority  to  use
HLDALLOUTQ.  See the companion tool RLSALLOUTQ.

A typical command would be:


All output queues on  the system would be held.   A spooled file  would
be displayed with the results.

HLDALLOUTQ escape messages you can monitor for

      TAA9893    No output queue objects exist.

Escape messages from based on functions will be re-sent.

HLDALLOUTQ Command parameters                         *CMD

   OUTQ          The  qualified  name  of  the output  queue(s)  to  be
                 held.    A  specific  name,  a  generic name,  or  the
                 special value *ALL may be entered.

                 The library  value  defaults  to *LIBL.    A  specific
                 library, *CURLIB,  *USRLIBL, *ALL,  or *ALLUSR may  be

   ACTION        The action to be taken.

                 *CHECK  is  the  default  which  does  not  cause  any
                 changes.    The  listing  describes  what  would  have
                 happened if *HOLD had been specified.

                 *HOLD may  be  entered to  hold  the specified  output

   OUTPUT        How  to output  the  results.   *  is  the default  to
                 display  the spooled  file if  the command  is entered
                 interactively.  The spooled  file is deleted after  it
                 is displayed.

                 If  the  command is  entered  in  batch or  *PRINT  is
                 specified,  the spooled  file is output  and retained.
