CA7ONL is the task which manages the CA 7 Central Control System. It performs an initialization process starting the functions that schedule and control the production environment. It is based on an initialization file that controls the environment. Statements within the file define the following items:
â– Environment in which the Central Control System resides
â– Processing options to exercise
â– Terminal and security definitions to use
â– Type of initialization to perform
â– Scheduling calendar (see page 221) definitions
An initialization process is necessary regardless of whether you use CA WA CA 7 Edition in batch-only mode for maintenance type functions or in online mode for automatic scheduling and production control.
Sometimes it can happen that, starting CA7ONL task, it can hang with error message:
CA-7.914 - LOCATE FAILED FOR JCL DATASET ‘hlq.CAL2HELP’
and the initialization phase doesn’t complete successfully.
