I have a batch queue with AUTOSTART_ON pointing to three nodes. I want
to change the order of these nodes, but nothing else. Can I do this
without deleting and re-creating the queue?
If I stop it and try INIT/QUEUE, I still get the message that changes
can't be made to a running queue.
Usual messing-with-the-queues sequence...
STOP/QUEUE/RESET qnam ! /RESET usually gets the attention of the
queue manager, and stops the queue
INIT/QUEUE [/whatever] qnam
The queue manager is another of those areas of OpenVMS that's just a
fount of confusion. Arcane, cryptic (e.g. f$getqui), and a subsystem
ill-suited for some of its common usages, and best replaced by a more
modern analog; by a distributed scheduler or ilk. But it's what we
have, so we deal with it.
