VISION:Results product codes are CPU dependent, so when a CPU changes or a product code expires, the new one is applied using the CUSTMJCL member delivered with the product.

It is strongly recommended to use the CUSTMJCL version last used at your site as this job modifies all the site customizable parameters. Using a new copy with the default parameter values may result in unexpected outcomes at your site if other parameters were modified.

If the prior version cannot be located an example is available on page 3-35 of the r5 Installation Guide for either OS/390 or VSE. These can be downloaded from Support Online.

For both z/OS and VSE input to the CUSTMJCL job:

  • DYLINSTL with the D after col 1
  • Continuation marks in col 72
  • Continuation lines start in 16
  • REFNO is your site id

Z/OS sample input:

//SYSIN DD *
         DYLINSTL ENVIRON=MVS,PRODUCT=II,SUBRADD=Y,                    X
               REFNO=XXXXXX,                                           X
               PRODCDE=(XXXX,XXXX,XXXX,XXXX,XXXX,XXXX,X)
         END
/* 

VSE sample input:

// EXEC ASSEMBLY 
         COPY DYLINSTL  
         DYLINSTL PRODUCT=II,                                          X
               ENVIRON=VSE2.1,                                         X
               REFNO=XXXXXX,                                           X
               PRODCDE=(XXXX,XXXX,XXXX,XXXX,XXXX,XXXX,X)
         END

DYLINSTL macro source must be a member of a PDS or SSL, not read directly from a sequential file.
