How to configure Abend Aid for Batch and CA SymDump batch to run in parallel on the same LPAR so both products can capture dumps.


The Symdump batch installation considerations are listed in the Installation Guide release 8.5 Chapter 2.

Abend Aid Installation Considerations
If you are using Compuware's Abend Aid at your site, you must execute CAIRIM after Abend Aid's initialization procedure.

You must also set the DUMP option to ON in the CA SymDump Batch default options member CAOETABL to produce a dump.

CA Symdump batch is started at IPL time by executing the CA common services utility program CAIRIM which executes CA SymDump batch initialization program RX85INIT.


Abend AID MUST start first. If CA Symdump batch is started first and then Abend aid is started, Abend Aid will fail to initialize.
