Description:

You can add files to the CA DADS Plus for CICS control file using the CICS online facility or by using the batch utility program DADM.
If the CA DADS Plus control file is allocated to CICS you must close the control file before running the DADM utility program to perform the requested update.

Solution:

The File Allocation Definition Add menu below can be used to add a file to the CA DADS Plus for CICS control file.
