Question:

CA Datacom puts out a lot of informational messages to the console. For example for dynamic extends:

DB01705I,- DYNAMIC EXTEND START xxxnnn TRK 37,395 dataset_name
DB01706I - DYNAMIC EXTEND END xxxnnn TRK 39,395 nnnnnn VOL 1 VOLS 1 EXT

Can CA Datacom automate actions on console messages? For example to redirect these messages to an email?

Answer:

There's no feature in CA Datacom that will automate actions on messages displayed on the console. This has to be done from a z/OS console automation product. CA OPS/MVS and CA SOLVE:Operations Automation are two CA products that can do this.
