RptMap error on GL batch jobs

, ,

Sometimes when a batch job in GL goes into recovery, you may get the following exception or error on your screen: “OpenFixedRptMap Can not create LAWDIR/pdl/obj/RptMap”. Fear not, this is a quick and easy fix! To get past this screen, you will need to make sure that the batch user has full access to the LAWDIR/pdl/obj directory. This will dismiss the error for the batch recovery. After you confirm the batch user has full access, at this point you can then recover the batch job. You should not get the error again. You can look at the screenshot below for reference.
