Ending journaling on a physical file

This user wondered if it was possible to end journaling on a physical file while it is allocated or in use.

I want end a Journal Physical File for my file in the library. But the file is allocated, and I get the message, "Cannot allocate object GKLPF in library DSILIB." Can I end Journal Physical File when file (*PF) is in use by another job? I can't terminate the job at present. ) How is this executed? Should I wait until the job no longer holds the lock on the object?
You have to wait until you can get an exclusive lock on the file before you can end journaling. So to answer your question, No you cannot end journaling on a physical file while it is allocated or in use.
