Description:

The DSNPFX parm should only be used if the HLQ for the COMMDS does not match the HLQ of your BATCHIN and BATACHOUT data sets.

Solution:

DSNPFX='batch.dsn.prefix.'

Specifies the high level qualifier (hlq) for the BATCHIN and BATCHOUT data sets. This must match the hlq for the BATCHI#x and BATCHO#x data sets that are defined to the CA Workload Automation CA 7 Edition started task. The BTI program dynamically allocates the BATCHIN and BATCHOUT files associated with a specific batch terminal. Normally, the BTI program constructs the data set names for these files using the data set name prefix from the CA 7 Edition communication data set (UCC7CMDS DD). The suffix BATCHI#n/BATCHO#n is appended to the prefix to construct the full data set names (where n is the associated batch terminal number). This parm is only needed if the hlq of the BATCHI#x and BATCHO#x is not the same as the hlq for the COMMDS.

Note: If a specific batch terminal (1-8) is specified and the BATCHIN and BATCHOUT DDs in the BTI JCL are coded, no dynamic allocation occurs.
