Description:

This procedure will allow full blown CA Easytrieve Plus Report Generator to run as a report writer for Jobtrac 11.0.

Solution:

If you are installing or have installed CA Jobtrac r11, it is recommended that you use the CA Easytrieve Common Service for producing CA Jobtrac reports. If you have a separate license for the full CA Easytrieve Plus Report Generator you can use it with CA Jobtrac but you must make the following changes:

For r11.x of CA Easytrieve Plus Report Generator:
You must add the following DD statement to your reports. Without this statement, your reports will return an RC=04 without an explanation.

//EZOPTBL DD DSN=easytrieve.EZOPTBL,DISP=SHR

Define a CA Datacom URT by running the ASMURTEZ job that was generated by your Stage 1 Jobtrac install pointing to the correct r11 Easytrieve libraries.

If you receive an RC=16 add the following DD statement to your reports:

//PDS DD DISP=SHR,DSN=easytrieve.CAIMAC
// DD DISP=SHR,DSN=jobtrac.CAISRC

For r6.4 of CA Easytrieve Plus Report Generator:

You must turn on the CA Datacom option in your install and then receive and apply the FMID for CA Datacom by doing the following. You must also have APAR# QO63004 applied to your 6.4 SMP library.

  1. In the CAIIJMP job in the SAMPJCL PDS, they must specify 'YES' for the DATACOM-OPT parameter and provide a MACLIB name for the DATACOM-MACLIB parameter. This will generate the Install JCL with the Datacom-related jobs.

  2. In the EZTPJ3 (SMP Receive) job the Datacom Option FMID (CI36400) must be specified.

  3. In the EZTPJ4 (SMP Apply) job the Datacom Option FMID (CI36400) must be specified.

  4. To define a Datacom URT run the ASMURTEZ job that was generated by your Stage 1 Jobtrac install pointing to the correct r6.4 Easytrieve libraries.

Add the following DD statement to your report JCL:

//PDS DD DISP=SHR,DSN=easytrieve.CAIMAC
// DD DISP=SHR,DSN=jobtrac.CAISRC
