An algorithm for starting the Call Directory Service (CDS) Advertiser and Clerk in an MVS implementation of the Open Software Foundation (OFS) / Distributed Computing Environment (DCE) is disclosed. This algorithm preserves the availability and integrity of CDS services. The initialization sequences of the Advertiser and Clerk are changed to o enable the Advertiser to be restarted without stopping and restarting the Clerk o ensure that the Advertiser and Clerk are started in the correct sequence.
