Question:

How can I verify the CA Spool parameters for any potential errors?

Answer: 

There are times when our ESFPARM or CAIQPARM members were updated and when a recycle was done on the task it failed with errors.  Please be advised that modifications to statements that affect the initialization process will not be checked. That is only done during a live start of the STC. For syntax checking of CA Spool statements and parameters you can perform the following steps: 

  1. Start the CA Spool STC with PARM=SCAN. This will perform a syntax check and then end the STC.
  2. Run ESFMAIN program as a batch job and specify PARM=SCAN. This will perform a syntax check and then end the job.

    Results of a failed scan with errors found. Look for messages; ESF018, ESF005 and ESF002 .

    JOB45999  IEF404I L1SPL11 - ENDED - TIME=12.33.47

    Notice the sequence numbers on the right side of each ESFPARM or CAIQPARM statement. These will help you find the statement or group of statements in error. Results of a good scan with no errors found. Look for the ESF015 message.
