Question:
Hi, I need your expertise to use the best method to submit a command to VM:Batch from MVS to post a job in VM. The command I would like to send to VM looks like : VMBATCH POST TEST

Is VM:Batch able to receive the command to execute it, or do I need to use a VMBATxx machine to do that ? 
Answer:
The POST command is a VMBATCH command that is sent to the VMBATCH service machine. So, no, to issue a POST command to VM:Batch does not involve a worker. Anything that would involve a worker would be funneled to the worker through the VMBATCH service machine. Nothing goes directly to a VMBATCH worker machine.
