To perform a cold start

If your message processing regions for an enterprise server become unresponsive for some reason you need to perform a cold start. Performing a cold start involves deleting the IMS message queue for an enterprise server, so any outstanding messages are lost and need to be resubmitted after the cold start.

To perform a cold start you delete the file \ES_name\imsmesgq.dat, where ES_name is the name of the enterprise server whose message processing regions are unresponsive.
