When using SAMPJCL, this JCL will get PTFs from support.ca.com to a PDS defined as FB=80 BLKSZ=3120. This will avoid downloading from the web to the PC and then upload to z/OS. Multiple PTFs can be downloading with one batch job run. Add a JOBCARD and only change what is highlighted. It is case sensitive so be sure to enter as shown. All Gen 8.5 PTFs are in binary format. Do NOT use this JCL to transfer files or dumps. There is another knowledge document with JCL for transferring files and dumps.
