Canceling the reclaim storage procedure

Can the reclaim storage procedure be cancelled before completion without causing any problems?

The RCLSTG may be ended with a sysreq option 2. If this is done, I would recommend doing the RCLSTG *DBXREF command because the database cross reference file is invalidated at beginning of RCLSTG and if ended prematurely that it doesn't get validated again. Therefore The RCLSTG *DBXREF should be done to validate this. The amount of time already spent on original RCLSTG is gone. The next run of RCLSTG starts at the beginning again. It is not usually recommended to abnormally end RCLSTG so please try to allocate a large window for this run.
