In case you want to disable this confirmation you can update the DSI command as follows:

  1. Go to /ASADMIN.C (Automation Services : Command List) and select the DSI command with line command 'U'.

  2. In the second panel titled "Prompting, Confirmation and Validation" change the value of "Does This Command Require Confirmation?" to NO:
    + Confirmation ------------------------------------------------------+
    ! Does This Command Require Confirmation? ... NO (YES or NO) !
    ! Confirmation Exit ... !
    +--------------------------------------------------------------------+
  3. Hit PF03 to save the changes. The Command List is displayed again and message RMPD0003 UPDATE COMPLETED SUCCESSFULLY shows the successful update.
