Subject: SAS/C++ help

I'm working on a project that uses SAS/C++ and I'm having problems getting the 
sasCC370 compiler in z/OS UNIX configured to include the Rogue Wave STL 
library. In the sascc.cfg file  I specified CXXLIBPREFIX=VENDOR.C750.RW but 
then it failed because the LIBCXX data set was not found. I tried to 
concatanate libraries using CXXLIBPREFIX=VENDOR.C750:VENDOR:C750.RW but that 
didn't work.

Is there a forum where I can ask SAS/C++ questions?

Problem executing bpxwunix

2021-01-05 Thread Gadi Ben-Avi
Hi,
I would like to automate some csm (Copy services manager) from z/OS.
I installed csmcli on z/OS, and if I run csmcli.sh from the omvs shell, it 
works ok.
I found the TechDoc named 'IBM Copy Services Manager session automation' by 
Thomas Luther which has a rexx program that sets up the environment to run 
csmcli.sh, get the output from it, and act upon the results.

The rexx program uses bpxwunix to call cshcli.sh
When I run the rexx program (whether under tso or in batch) I get lots of error 
messages.
I added an echo command at the beginning of csmcli.sh so I will know when it 
starts.
The command I added is 'echo "start csmcli.sh"'
When I run it from the omvs shell, it works fine.
When I run it from tso I get:
echo: csmcli.sh 10: FSUM7351 not found

Does this mean that it can't find the echo command?

How can I fix this?

I would also point out quite a few customers restart CICS on a daily (sometimes

I should imagine therefore there would have to be a lot of thinking around

not what SRB supports.

Could we use SYSTEM boost to make the process of shutting down the CICS region 
and restarting them?
 

That would not be an appropriate use of the shutdown boost. Shutdown boost 

is for shutting down the entire system.


Note that IBM also has a separate feature called "System Recovery Boost 
Upgrade" which is unrelated to "System Recovery Boost" ... it is more like 
CUoD.  That is a paid feature and gives a 6 hour boost in processing speed. 


"Gives a 6 hour boost in processing speed" is not a good characterization of 
System Recovery Boost Upgrade.  It does not do so. Each activation (and 

the upgrade covers multiple) gives you a 6 hour window during which additional 
processors can be applied to each LPAR when that LPAR is starting up or 
shutting down. It is during the startup and the shutdown that the additional 
processors can participate.

Yes, You can update the CICS SVC without an IPL.
There is a program supplied with CICS to do it.

We are to take delivery of a z15-t02.
I have a question about system boost.
A few months ago, as part of upgrading CICS, we shut down all of our CICS 
regions in order to upgrade the CICS SVC.

We are running z/OS v2.3

Could we use SYSTEM boost to make the process of shutting down the CICS region

Does either of these, or TXT2PDF, avoid problems resulting because (as I

Can they deal with CSSID 1208 files containing a mixture of such as Hebrew:

The answer depends on what SMTP server you are running on z/OS.
Is it SMTP or CSSMTP.
For SMTP I think you need to have a file named TCPIPPFX.STANDARD.TCPXLBIN with 
the correct translation table.
TCPIPPFX is defined in the DATASETPREFIX parameter in TCPDATA.

For CSSMTP there is a parameter named CSSMTP_CODEPAGE_CONFIG. The value should 
be IBM-424.
These is also a parameter call Charset which should be ISO8859-8.

Re: JES2 Policies

2020-11-04 Thread Gadi Ben-Avi
Hi Everone.
Thanks for responding.

We 'purchased'  a system from another site. 
The jobs that came with the system do not have a CLASS parameter specified.
They do have specific values in the accounting fields that are supposed to 
assign the job to specific classes.
I assume they had an exit that did all of this.

Up until now, all of the jobs ran in the same class, with the same service 
class.
I've been asked to assign a lower service class to jobs that have a specific 
(not specified as yet) value in the accounting data.

The simplest way would have been to tell the job owners to code a CLASS 
parameter on the JOB card, but they say that that is too much work.

I looked at doing this using WLM definitions. 
It works if the value in the accounting data is in the first 8 bytes.
Otherwise, it get complicated to write, debug, and read.

I read about JES2 Policies, so I looked it up in the documentation.

Hi All,

Where can I find the z/OS accumulated enhanced holddata?

It used to be on the below page...

http://service.software.ibm.com/holdata/390holddata.html

...on a table where there was one packaging form in plain test for 730 days 
that included FIXCATs.

This is not a matter of "site down for Sunday maintenance", because I could not 
get it on Friday and Saturday either.

HSM problem

2020-10-15 Thread Gadi Ben-Avi
Hi,
We're installing HSM on a new z/OS v2.4 partition.
HSM starts and seems to be OK.
When I issue the F HSM,BACKVOL CDS  command, I get:
ARC0744E MCDS COULD NOT BE BACKED UP, RC=0024,  677
ARC0744E (CONT.) REAS=. MIGRATION, BACKUP, FRBACKUP, DUMP, AND
ARC0744E (CONT.) RECYCLE HELD.

RC 24 says that a scratch tape could not be allocated.

When I run a simple IEBGENER job to write to tape, there are no problems.

What can the problem be?

Re: IEASYS problem

2020-10-05 Thread Gadi Ben-Avi
Hi,
During the IPL, The message:
IEA008I SYSTEM PARMS FOLLOW FOR z/OS 02.03.00 HBB77B0
IEASYS0B 
IEASYS00 
Was displayed.
I then see 
IEE252I MEMBER IEASYS00 FOUND IN SYS1.PARMLIB 
IEA325I IEASYS00 PARAMETER LIST   
With a list of all of the parameters is IEASYS00
IEE252I MEMBER IEASYS0B FOUND IN SYS1.PARMLIB 
IEA325I IEASYS0B PARAMETER LIST   
With a list of all of the parameters is IEASYS0B
IEE252I MEMBER IEASYS00 FOUND IN SYS1.PARMLIB  
IEA325I IEASYS00 PARAMETER LIST
With a list of all of the parameters is IEASYS00

So it looks like IEASYS00 was read  twice.
When I looked in IEASYM00 it said:
SYSDEF  SYSPARM(00,L) 
SYMDEF(='V919')   
I changed IEASYM00 to:
SYSDEF  LPARNAME(CDVL) SYSPARM(0A,L) 
SYMDEF(='V919')   
SYSDEF  LPARNAME(CMP1) SYSPARM(0B,L) 
SYMDEF(='V919')   
Which I hope will fix the problem.

We have a product called Image Focus from NewEra Software, which among other 
things, parses  the PARMLIB.
It currently tells me that everything is OK.

I'll have to wait for the next IPL to check.

IEASYS problem

2020-10-03 Thread Gadi Ben-Avi
HI,

I went into work this evening to IPL our production LPAR's

When I IPL's one system, it used IEASYS00 instead of the system specific 
IEASYS0B.

The LOAD member for the LPAR says

SYSPARM 0B.


The only thing that has changed recently is that we started using IEASYM for 
the first time ever.

We specified IEASYM 00 in LOADxx and there is an IEASYM00 member in 
SYS1.PARMLIB that adds a static symbol.


Could this be causing the problem?


We are running z/OS v2.3

Synchronizing VTL VOLCAT and TMS

Hi,
We have the following situation:
Virtual volumes exist in the VTL (TS7760) using the correct category for a 
specific LPAR.
Some are in category 008F and some in 0082
The same volumes are defined in the TMS (Control-M/Tape in this case).
The volumes are not defined in the VOLCAT.
How can I either:
Delete the volumes from the VTL. Attempting this resulted in a message that 
said:
No volumes were deleted because the volumes in the range do not meet one or 
more of the following criteria:

The deletion can only be issued for an unused logical volume, which is defined 
as a volume in the insert category that has not been mounted by a host or a 
volume in the insert category that has had its category, constructs, or 
attributes changed by a host. Certain volumes can be moved back to the insert 
category by the host or through damaged token recovery.

Or
Do something so that the VOLCAT is updated correctly.

Thanks

With the RLIST just scan to the bottom and you will see this section:

During development, once you logged-on, exit ISPF to TSO and enter PFG TEST. 
the TEST operand will cause ISPF to read the panel definition from the dataset

ISPF development question

2020-07-30 Thread Gadi Ben-Avi
Hi,

I was told to develop an ISPF application.
It's been a long time since I did this, so I'm having some issues.

Whenever I change a panel definition, I have to logoff and logon for the 
updated definition to show.
Is there a way to have ISPF use the updated definition without logging off and 
on.

Thanks

Using NTP

2020-07-16 Thread Gadi Ben-Avi
Hi,

I was asked to make sure that the mainframes are using the same time source as 
the rest of the computers on our network.
I know what the NTP servers are in our network.

In the HMC, I found 'Customize Console Date/Time'
I added the NTP servers to the screen, and they seem to have been accepted.
(I did this for our DR computer)

Do I have to do anything else?

We are currently running z13s's if that matters.

Thanks

Gadi

You cannot do it.
Both datasets require to be DFSMS-managed and then cataloged.
So you have to share the catalog (BCS), otherwise you will get error or 
uncataloged datasets on SMS volume, which is also not the best idea.
Another method: dump you datasets to PS file on shared volume. Then restore it 
on target system. Much easier and less error-prone.

Copying Extended format datasets between partitions

2020-07-14 Thread Gadi Ben-Avi
HI,
I have to copy extended format (PS-E and VS-E) datasets between partitions.
The partitions share DASD but do not share anything else.
They have different SMS configurations.
The same Storage Group is defined in both partitions, but each partition has 
different volumes.

I've been copying datasets between partitions like these for a while using this 
DFSMSdss copy command:
COPY DATASET( -
   INCLUDE( -
   SYS1.IOA.V919.LNKLST -
   SYS1.IODF24.CLUSTER -
   )) -
   REPLACE-
   TOL(ENQF) -
   BYPASSACS(**) -
   NULLSTORCLAS  -
   PROCESS(SYS1)  -
   ALLDATA(*) ALLEXCP -
   RECATALOG(ICFCAT.MCATZ23) -
   OUTDYNAM(Z23R01) -
   SHARE

The catalog in the RECATALOG parameter is the catalog for the destination 
partition.

Does anyone have an idea how to do this for SMS managed extended format 
datasets?

Thanks

Gadi

The files are named HSM.VTOC.** and HSM.HMIG.** How do I tell HSM to copy these

Re: Changing the volser of an HSM ML1 volume

2020-07-13 Thread Gadi Ben-Avi
Hi Again,
The VTOC records are newish. There are some from today and some from earlier in 
the year.
The Migrated files seems to be OK. They were created because the storage group 
was defined with automigrate.
I changed the storage group to not have automigrate, so no new files will be 
migrated.

How can I move those files to the new volume?

Subject: Re: Changing the volser of an HSM ML1 volume

Gadi,

How old are VTOC files? Are they required?

Do the HMIG files have catalog entries and “D” records in the MCDS?

To find the full datasetname for an HMIG file so you can check for a “D” record 
issue the following:

HSEND FIXCDS A HMIGfilename

Once you have the full datasetname you can then check if there is valid “D” 
record by issuing the following:

HSEND FIXCDS D fulldatasetname

If there is a “D” record try recalling the dataset. If this works you can 
delete the associated DFHSM “A” and “D” records. Then make an DFHSM backup.

If there is no “D” record you can do the following:


1.   If the dataset is not too important delete the associated “A” record 
and delete the HMIG file on the ML1 volume. If you have a backup then restore 
the dataset.

2.   If you have no backup and the dataset is important you can recreate 
the “D” record. Check the manuals for this procedure. Then recall it as above.

How do you change dynamically root filesystem's mount mode to R/W and back to

What do you mean by saying "the IBM Root Filesystem is actually mount at 
/ipl-vol/ "?
The Version root has to be mounted R/O off a mountpoint at the Sysplex root.
We do not place any VSAM dataset on the iplvol. Only non-VSAMs are placed 
there, because we use symbolic cataloging via  and , which isn't 
possible (I think) for VSAM datasets.

Installing Java

2020-06-30 Thread Gadi Ben-Avi
Hi,
When I ordered z/OS v2.4, I only ordered the 64 bit version of Java.
When we tried to start PFA, it failed. A quick search showed that PFA requires 
the 31 bit version of java.
I ordered it using shopzseries.
The resulting package was over 13GB.
It looks like I have the base version and over 50 PTF's that upgrade it to the 
current version.

Can I prevent SMP/E from installing all of those versions, and just install the 
final fix?

More than one HMCS Console per LPAR

2020-06-15 Thread Gadi Ben-Avi
Hi,
Is it possible to define more than one HMCS console for an LPAR?

We are currently in the early stages of z/OS v2.4 installation.
Since were working from home, it would help if we could have more than one HMCS 
consoles.

We are using a z13s.

Thanks

Re: Base SYSPLEX setup

2020-05-31 Thread Gadi Ben-Avi
Hi Brian,
When building a sysplex using CTC's, each LPAR mist have connectivity to all of 
the other LPARS. 
If you have more than two LPARS, it gets complicated very fast.

I've always had to get help from IBM for defining the CTC's in HCD. 
Once you have to connectivity defined, the rest is fairly easy. It's all in the 
'Setting up a sysplex' Manual.
You have to setup COUPLExx members in parmlib. Here you define the devices that 
are used for communication. 

Once that is done and all of the systems are in the sysplex, GRS knows it (I 
think) and can be defined and used.

IF you have two LPARS, then two ficon cards are enough for two sets of 
communication paths.
If you have three LPARS, then you will need 3 Ficon cards
If you have four LPARS, then you will need 6 ficons cards 

This assumes that you have two paths between LPARs to avoid a single point of 
failure.

The IOCP definitions also get complicated the more LPARs you have.

Maybe getting an ICP (A dedicated CPU for the coupling facility) and more 
memory, will not be as expensive as you thing, and will be a lot simpler.

Subject: Base SYSPLEX setup

Hi,

I'm looking for information on how to set up a base SYSPLEX with only Ficon 
CTC's that seem to be referred to as XCF CTC's.

I'm sure someone had done this before and is probably doing it now for Multiple 
LPARs that are running on the same processor CEC.  Configuration help (parms 
etc.) would be greatly appreciated.  I think all we need to do to connect the 3 
existing LPARs is purchase 2 FICON cards (we currently have no extras).  
Unfortunately, the IBM docs seem to talk a lot about the full parallel 
sysplexes (with Coupling facilities), but we don't have them, and they seem to 
be a great deal more expensive than FICON cards which are all we need to 
implement GRS anyway (that's our goal).  We can also apparently create a 
virtual CF, but the overhead appears to be far greater than we can spare.

Any CXF CTC setup information would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

IDCAMS not freeing file

2020-05-07 Thread Gadi Ben-Avi
Hi,
We have the following problem

I job runs IDCAMS that delete and redefines a VSAM KSDS file.
The next step uses a user program to send a command to CICS to open file file.

In one partition this works fine.
In another partition we get:
DFHFC0952 CICSTOR8
DYNAMIC ALLOCATION OF NON-RLS FILE LMFVPAPZ FAILED. RETURN CODE
X'0004',X'0210' IN MODULE DFHFCFS.

The manual says that this messaga is issued when the file is allocated with 
DISP=OLD.

If we run the second step after the first job has ended, it runs OK.

It looks like IDCAMS is not freeing the file after the step ends.

Does anyone have an idea what can be causing this?

   outdd is the ddname where the extracted data is

   jobnum is the job number for the desired job

   options currently supported are: 

   ACTIVE   - only process jobs that are currently

- set on if jobname is *

   DEBUG- will echo the generated SDSF cmds 

   INPUT- will allow selection of input data

Example:   %sdsfext smtp logfile report 

   This will extract the ddname LOGFILE for each

   output going to preallocated DD REPORT.

Hi,
Every now and again, I have to send the output from a job or started task to

Saving all of the output is simple using SDSF's XDC command, but that saves all

It's much easier to deal with the individual spool files.

Does anyone have a utility that can split the output according to the different

Gadi,

You can accomplish what you want very easily using the SDSF REXX interface, you 
even have two options of how :

(1) Use ISFACT and the "SA" action to allocate a DDName to each different spool 
dataset and then use EXECIO to put the records wherever you want
(2) Use ISFBROWSE to process data at the "cursor" position.

Option (1) is probably easier conceptually, however because it reads the data 
into stems it could have storage constraints for large spool datasets.
Option (2) uses a logical cursor so will be a better general purpose solution.

HSM question

2019-09-11 Thread Gadi Ben-Avi
Hi,
I wanted to restore a PDS backed up by HSM.
When I looked, I only found one backup version of the PDS.
When I looked through the HSM logs, I found that it was backed up many times.

The PDS is on a NON-SMS volume.
The addvol statement for the volume is:
ADDVOL vv UNIT(3390) PRIMARY(AUTODUMP(SUNDAY) AB)

Sunday is defined as:
DEFINE DUMPCLASS(SUNDAY DAY(6) -
   RETPD(27) AUTOREUSE NORESET  -
   DATASETRESTORE VTOCCOPIES(0))

The default management class says to keep 20 versions of backups:

What am I doing wrong?
I am running z/OS v2.2.

Hi,
I am having trouble mounting a file system.
I issue the command
  MOUNT FILESYSTEM('SYSV.OMVS.PTFS') MOUNTPOINT('/u/ptfs') TYPE(ZFS) MODE(RDWR)
And get
BPXF135E RETURN CODE 0081, REASON CODE EF096055.  THE MOUNT FAILED FOR FILE 
SYSTEM SYSV.OMVS.PTFS.

Accordint to BPXMTEXT, the meaning of EF096055 is:
zFS Thu Mar 14 14:29:55 EDT 2019
Description: Error with issuing a LOCATE call on an HFS-compat aggregate.

Action: Ensure that the zFS file system named on the MOUNT command has the
same name as the VSAM Linear Data Set (and the HFS compatibility mode
aggregate) that contains the file system.

SYSV.OMVS.PTFS exists
/u/ptfs exists, is a directory and is empty.

What is the problem?

Hi

I am trying to download some PDS member to submit to vendor.

I am trying to do ftp via dos and I am able to list the PDS from DOS. When I do 
mget * I get a message as '200 representation type is ASCII nonprint'
and after that it is not showing up any member to download and it just goes to 
a ftp prompt like FTP>.

I don't find a error message in lpar SYSLOG too.

I tried sending file via 3270 emulator and it works but just through dos it 
fails

Any clue where I might be looking ?

DB2P.ARCHLOG2.B0003034 and DB2P.ARCHLOG2.A0003034 should be one tape.  The 
prior is the BSDS copy and latter is the archive log.

In the DSNJ003I message associated with DB2P.ARCHLOG2.A0003034 is UNIT=WORK 
correct?  Do you see a catalog entry for DB2P.ARCHLOG2.A0003034 related to disk?

Subject: Writing DB2 Archlog to tape

Hi,

I was asked by our DB2 DBA to direct one of the DB2 ARCHLOGS to tape  - Virtual 
tape on a TS7760.

I changed our SMS STORCLAS routine to direct the correct files to the TAPE 
Storage class.
That DATACLAS routine was also changed to associate the correct DATACLAS to the 
file.
I tested using ISMF and saw that the changes did what I wanted.

When we told DB2 to create a new ARCHLOG we saw that one of the ARCHLOGs is 
created ok and cataloged, and the other one is not cataloged.
Further investigation showed that both files were created on the same virtual 
tape.

These are the messages we saw in DB2:

Who is changing a user's ISPF profile

Hi,

A user is complaining that 'someone' is changing their ISPF profile and setting 
that they set up are changing.

Can I track this in SMF and see who, if anyone is doing this?

I saw the SMF 42 records are created when members in a PDS or PDS/E are changed.

Will they pick up ISPF profile changes?



We are running z/OS v2.2.

Re: Using bpxbatch to compress an MVS dataset

2019-06-30 Thread Gadi Ben-Avi
If both systems are on the same physical computer, it might not be worth it.
The time and cpu cycles it would take to compress and uncompress might take 
longer than transferring the un compressed file.

Subject: Using bpxbatch to compress an MVS dataset

I have a batch process in zOS 2.1 (soon to be 2.3) that creates a large text 
file I want to FTP to a zLinux system.

How can I use bpxbatch tar or compress (or ?) to create a smaller file I can 
ftp instead instead of the original file? I don’t want to use pkzip unless 
that’s the only choice. Terse is no good because Linux can’t unterse it.

Is there a way to specify a DD name for the input and output files, similar to 
how FTP allows put/get //DD:

Part two... the text in the file is EBCDIC, but Linux wants ASCII. I don’t see 
an option to do the conversion.

I’ll have to check tr, but maybe there’s a way to use more traditional Unix 
syntax like

cat //dd:in | tr ... | tar -cv //dd:out

Cheers,
Don

is the current ZFS an SMS managed dataset ? and are you selecting a non managed 
volume? 
or is it no SMS managed and you are selecting a target volume that is SMS 
managed?

Hi,
I am trying to move a large ZFS to another volume. 
The ZFS is 405,000 tracks or 27,00 Cylinders. 

The target volume is a 3390-54 and has 957,705 tracks or 63,847 cylinders free.
