Introduction: 

The client just installed CA Verify for CICS r 9.0 and would like to define multiple TCADS files to the environment. The TCADS file is used to store the CA Verify scripts. The client would like to define two TCADS files to their environment.

Instructions: 

All the user needs to do is to IDCAMS define the second TCADS file and initialize it with the CA verify FOR CICS utility program TCABATCH. The JCL used to define and initialize the TCADS file is located in install dataset HLQ.CATJJCL(ATJDEFDS).

Then the user is required to add a DD statement to the CICS Startup JCL as outlined below. In this example the second TCADS file is call TCADS2. No FCT entry is required since CA Verify for CICS does not have an FCT entry in its RDO group for any TCADS file.

//TCADS2   DD  DSN=VERIFY90.CICS68.TCADS2,DISP=SHR

Then when logging a CA verify for CICS script the user enters the TCADS file on the panel as listed below.
