Issue:
I have a z/VM 6.3 system with CA VM:Backup (TM) HiDRO Feature Version 02.8 RS1309. Below is a sample SYSIN file which I can send to virtual machine SYBMON in order for a tape backup operation to occur.
Note the filename and filetype in CMS is MRFZSYS SI120318.

GLOBAL PRTDEST RFOSTER MAXTAPE 4 * MRFZSYS created 12/03/18 08:34:01 B U 0100 USER (ZVSEDASD RR) TO TAPE - OSF ZVSEDASD.MD0100.BASE.D120318 ( OTAPE (FSN * LEAVE RETPD 7 ) PACK B U 0101 USER (ZVSEDASD RR) TO TAPE - OSF ZVSEDASD.MD0101.BASE.D120318 ( OTAPE (FSN * LEAVE RETPD 7 ) PACK B U 0102 USER (ZVSEDASD RR) TO TAPE - OSF ZVSEDASD.MD0102.BASE.D120318 ( OTAPE (FSN * LEAVE RETPD 7 ) PACK B U 0103 USER (ZVSEDASD RR) TO TAPE - OSF ZVSEDASD.MD0103.BASE.D120318 ( OTAPE (FSN * LEAVE RETPD 7 ) PACK

I perform the following command from my CMS user id RFOSTER:

SENDFILE MRFZSYS SI120318 A TO SYBMON A backup based on the parameters within the file occurs, no issues there.

I get returned to my RFOSTER virtual reader two files:
q r all *
ORIGINID FILE CLASS RECORDS CPY HOLD DATE TIME NAME TYPE DIST HIDRO 2732 A PRT 00000023 001 NONE 12/03 08:35:32 HIDRO SM120318 CSCPP HIDRO 2733 A PRT 00000114 001 NONE 12/03 08:35:55 HIDRO LG120318 CSCPP RFoster at TKEVM; T=0.01/0.01

Is there a way the filename of the summary and log file can be something of my choosing?
n this case I would want the filename to be MRFZSYS SM120318 and MRFZSYS LG120318, which would correlate to the MRFZSYS SI120318 (SYSIN) file that created the summary and log file?
Resolution:
The only way to achieve what you would like to do is to create a LOGICAL Pool named MRFZSYS using the HiDRO Catalog Management Panels (PF5 on the HiDRO Main Menu; then, PF6 on the HiDRO Setup Menu).

You only need to define the new LOGICAL Pool, you can connect it to any existing PHYSICAL Pool, or you can create a new PHYSICAL Pool if you wish to do so.

The advantages of this are:
1) You get your LG and SM files as MRFZSYS LGmmddyy and MRFZSYS SMmmddyy

2) When you log on to SYBMON and go to "Define/Change Backup" (PF5 on the SYBMON Main Menu), you will now see an entry for MRFZSYS, so you can create and modify the CMDCTL/SFSCTL and SELECTS file for this "Job" (LOGICAL Pool).

3) Because it will now be a Defined Job known to the HiDRO system, you can either schedule it to be run on a pre-defined basis, or submit it when needed via SMSG SYBMON CMD MRFZSYS to run the job when needed.

In either case, the LG and SM files will be returned with the naming convention you would like.  You can still use the PRTDEST Global Option to route them to your personal ID if you wish.
