The location of the pasadvop file is shown in CA Chorus Software Manager on the /Settings/System Settings/Software Acquisition next to "Advanced Settings Data Set".

In case the location needs to be changed or is wrong, is there a way to change that location?



The change of the location of the PASADVOP member is via DBUPDATE.

To do so:

  • go into your r6.0 runtime.SAMPLIB dataset and create a new member named DBUPDATE.
  • In this member insert the following statements (see DBINIT for example)...

PASAdvancedSettingsPDS=csm.v60.runtime.SAMPLIB      <- the new location of PASADVOP member

PASAdvancedSettingsMember=PASADVOP                       <- name of the PASADVOP member

  • Next modify the MSMTC task to change DBINIT DD to DBUPDATE DD and point to this newly create member.
  • Recycle MSMTC task to update the database.
  • Afterwards change DBUPDATE DD back to DBINIT DD which will be picked up next time when the tasks are recycled.


Additional Information:

Wrong pasadvop location will result in the following error in the MSMTC log:
