Jobs set to scan Output: Abnormal Strings have the Externally Defined status when there is no output.
When no output is available, there is not a way to can the output to tell the status of a job, so therefore you mark it as externally defined in order to raise a flag when a user can go an determine what the status should be.
In order to resolve this issue add sysval 108 option. When this sysval is set to "Y", jobs described in this case would be set to Completed Normally instead of Externally Defined.
