Question:  

What needs to be done to update the external job tracking feature in CA 7?

Answer:  

The following document describes how to run CAS9 (CAIRIM) to update an existing external tracking table for a CA 7 instance.

  1. After adding new tasks to the table, you will assemble and link SASSEXTL and SASSEXTT, then refresh LLA (if needed).

  2. You will create a new member called XJOBUPD and it will have the following control card:

    CA71 UPDATE XJOB(SASSEXTL)

  3. Next you will run CAS9 (CAIRIM) to load the new table using the following os command:

    S CAS9 ,L2OPTS=XJOBUPD

  4. If modifications were made to SASSEXTT, you will need to issue the following top line CA 7 command:

    /RELINK,A=SASSEXTT, If there is an APPLCTN statement in the CA 7 initialization file for SASSEXTT with an ATTR=PERM or RESD, then the /RELINK cannot be done and you will have to bounce 7 to load the new copy of SASSEXTT.

The following is a sample CAS9(CAIRIM) JCL:


//CAIRIM EXEC PGM=CAIRIM,REGION=0M
//STEPLIB DD DISP=SHR,DSN=your.common.services.loadlib
// DD DISP=SHR,DSN=your.CA7.loadlib
//PARMLIB DD *
PRODUCT(CA-7) VERSION(L2B3) <-- change version if needed
//L2OPTS DD *
CA71 UPDATE XJOB(SASSEXTL)
//KEYS DD DUMMY
//
