Question:
In fact what we are looking for is a tool that could 'syntax check' the set of options BEFORE we try to start TLMS and that would tell us which one is obsolete if any... A little like the TYPRUN=SCAN parameter in JCL... Does it exist?
Answer:
If you are looking to verify an updated TLMSIPO before a REINIT/INIT, change the PARM to TESTD and update the TLMSOPTS DD with the location of the new TLMSIPO member.
