Introduction: 

CA Workload Automation AE (AutoSys Edition) can send a request to submit a job that is defined to CA Scheduler JM. This Knowledge Document will describe components needed and the setup requirements.

Instructions: 

CA Workload Automation AE (AutoSys Edition) product must be installed.

CAICCI connections must be defined in the CCIRMTD.RC file. The CCIRMTD.RC file should contain one LOCAL statement that points to the local machine, and REMOTE statement(s) that point to the mainframe system(s) where CA Scheduler JM is active. The LOCAL and REMOTE statement will contain the following:

 LOCAL = hostname cciname startup [ALIAS=alias_name]

 REMOTE = hostname cciname  32768 startup [port=nnnn]

In the REMOTE statement, the hostname is the node name and the cciname is the SYSID value from the CCITCPGW started task.
In the LOCAL statement, the alias name may be necessary if the local machine name is greater than 8 characters.

Requirements on the z/OS system where CA Scheduler JM resides

CA Scheduler JM must be initialized with the following CAIRIM CAS9 CAIJGEN options:

  XPLAT=YES                   YES to allow the submission of cross-platform         

  XPMON=monitor-name    must be a 7 character unique name 

  XPRET=30|days              number of days a node is to remain idle before Scheduler deletes the node 

  XPS=YES                       if XPS router is to run CA Scheduler address space

 

CA-XPS (Cross-Platform Scheduling Common Component) must be installed. CA-XPS can be installed from the CA Common Services (CCS) tape. The FMID is CCF9E00. The XPS router can be running in the CA Scheduler JM address space, in another CA scheduling product's address space, or in its own address space. 

To run the XPS router in the CA Scheduler JM address space, the CAS9 CAIJGEN option XPS must be set to YES.

CAICCI is used for communication between CA Workload Automation AE (AutoSys Edition) and the XPS router. CAENF is used to activate this communication. In the CAENF JCL, add the PROTOCOL(TCPIPGW) statement to existing PDS member CCIPARMS that is allocated on the ENFPARMS DD statement. This protocol statement will automatically start the started task CCITCPGW when CAENF is activated.

CAENF must have the event type of CAXPSFBK installed which is used for tracking these jobs and the CAL2DCM2.   The following statements is needed in the CAENF ENFPARMS dd.

 DCM(CAL2DCM2)   

 EVENT(CAXPSFBK,ACT)      

 EVENT(CAXPSFBK,REC)      

 EVENT(CAXPSFBK,PURGE=N)
