- BMP programs: BMP programs participate with online shared IMS databases and are not eligible for backout processing.
- GSAM databases are not supported for batch backout.
- Databases which have been made available to online BMP programs, IMS transactions, CICS transactions or ODBA applications
are no longer eligible for batch backout processing.
- Batch Backout processing is currently limited to a single input log file.

DD statements are not supported. If there are multiple input log files, then you need to run the backout utility multiple times.
Take care to process the files in the correct order.
