You may change the delivered defaults for the following options at any time after installation. These options can be changed by assembling and linking the module DPLUSOPT.

Solution:

Chapter 10 the CA DADS Plus for CICS installation guide for release 4.0 outlines the DPLUSOPT module.

To change the default options edit the HLQ.SAMPLIB member DPLUSOPT.

Then assemble and link the DPLUSOPT module AMODE(24) RMODE(24).

The CA DADS Plus for CICS load library is NOT shipped with a DPLUSOPT load module.

The defaults come from a CA DADS Plus for CICS program.

But if a DPLUSOPT load module is found in the DFHRPL concatenation then those defaults are used.

The seven options that can be changed are

ALLOC/OPEN AT COLD START    ===> Y Y   OPEN AFTER ONLINE ALLOC ===> Y   
ALLOC/OPEN AT WARM START    ===> A Y
ALLOC/OPEN AT EMER RESTART  ===> A Y
