This document explains how to remove Submit Data Sets from the CA 7 environment. 


In a non-shared JES environment, if CA 7 submitted jobs are required to run on a different LPAR than where CA 7 resides, you must use Submit Data Sets and have ICOM do the submission. In a shared JES environment, JES routes jobs and Submit Data Sets should not be used. If you want to remove Submit Data Set(s) and have CA 7 submit the jobs (instead of ICOM), you will have to make changes to the CA 7 Initialization File (pointed to by the UCC7IN DD statement in the CA 7 online procedure), and to the CA 7 and ICOM procedures. In the CA 7 Initialization File, remove the CPU statement that has the DDNAME=xxxxxxxx (where xxxxxxxx is the DD name of the Submit Data set in the CA 7 procedure). Remove the DD from the CA 7 and ICOM procedures and change the ICOM PARM DDNAME= to *NONE*. Shutdown/Stop CA 7/ICOM and restart to get the changes into effect. You only need to stop/start the ICOM task that referred to the removed submit data set.
