Question:

What is required for using the NOTWITH statement?

Answer:

The NOTWITH statement is coded in a JOB definition, and it is used to specify jobs that are mutually exclusive with the current job. 

The NOTWITH statement uses resources internally, and requires the following set up before it can be used:

1. A resource file (RESFILE).

2. The system topology (NODE and CPU command). 

    Example:     NODE prodsys ADD

                      CPU prod ADD NODE(prodsys) CURRENT ACTIVE

                     

Additional Information:

- The RESFILE is a VSAM data set.  A RESFILE init statement must be coded in the CA WA ESP master subsystem init parmlib to specify the resource data set's name and characteristics.  The RESFILE init statement is documented in the CA WA ESP Installation and Configuration Guide.

- NODE and CPU command are documented in the CA WA ESP Installation and Configuration Guide, and in the CA WA ESP Command Reference Guide.
