Description:

CA Easytrieve release 11.x has the functionality to allow multiple option files to be created.

Solution:

With the following parameters below, please the correct job corresponding to which release of CA Easytrieve you have:

For release 11.0, please run job JOB06EOP from the SAMPJCL dataset.
For release 11.5, please run job JOB06EOP from the CAIJCL dataset.
For release 11.6, please run job JOB06OP1 from the CAIJCL dataset.

Please specify:

LOADINIT=99 (so that a pointer to this second option file is NOT linked into the EZTINI member of the CAILIB)
LOADOPT=00 (load default values)
//LOADDEF.SYSIN should be specified as CREATEFILE
and the ASMINI.SYSIN should be the name of the second option file to be created and enclosed in single quotes.

A //EZOPTBL DD statement for this option file will need to be included in the JCL when compiling and executing the CA Easytrieve program.
