Question: 

 

What about the BLP process with COPYCAT ?

 

Answer: 

Copycat uses BLP processing when copying files. We need to be sure the JES2 class we are running in allows BLP.

If  we  look at the JES2 parms member that are running on the machine we can have:


JOBCLASS(A) ACCT=NO, 
BLP=NO, 
COMMAND=IGNORE, 
IEFUJP=YES, 
IEFUSO=YES, 
* 
/* TAPE AND CART JOBS */ 
JOBCLASS(T) ACCT=NO, 
BLP=YES, 
COMMAND=IGNORE, 
HOLD=YES, 

* 
We  can see that we DO NOT allow BLP within CLASS A.

But we do allow BLP processing within class T, this is our tape class.

 

We need to find a Jes2 class that allows BLP and re-run the job in that class. 

 

If you are seeing NL/SL mounts for these Copycat  jobs, check the Jes2 class
