Question:

Can I suppress CA OPS/MVS product messages?

Answer:

It is not recommended as it could have side effects but yes it is possible. As long as the message is modifiable you need to change the severity level to O or J.  

J -- Informational messages. No action required. However these messages are also sent to the AOF where they are eligible to execute MSG rules.

O -- Automatable messages. No action required. However these messages are also sent to the AOF where they are eligible to execute MSG rules.

For message OPS1181 since it is modifiable you need to add the following code in the OPSSPAxx member.

T = OPSPRM_Set("OPS1181","J")

Then use a sample rule to suppress the message from various logs:

     )MSG OPS1181J NOOPSLOG         /* Suppress from OPSLOG */ 
     /*                   */ 
     )PROC 
     MSG.JOBLOGSUP = 1                /* Suppress from JOBLOG - JESMSGLG */ 
     MSG.WTP = 0                      /* Suppress from JESYSMSG */ 
     return "DELETE"                  /* Suppress from console and SYSLOG */
