RGZPFM While Active, show jobs locking object in the job log

When performing a RGZPFM with ALWCANCEL(*YES), if the job completes but cannot return the deleted space due to the file being locked by other jobs, it would be useful if a message was issued in the RGZPFM's joblog, stating that jobs were locking the object and the deleted space could not be returned. Even better, if it could list the jobs locking the object being reorganised.

    IBM does not intend to provide a solution to this request at this time, so it is being closed.

    While the IBM development team agrees that this would be a nice feature to add, the implementation is more complex than it appears. The database team has many higher priority requirements, so this request is not likely to be implemented anytime soon.
