Question:
What DCB and allocation parameters should be used in the //SYSPRINT DD of the OPSSLGP procedure?
 
Environment:
CA OPS/MVS 13.5
Answer:
For the sample proc OPSSLGP to "pre-allocate a dataset for the SYSPRINT DD and route messages destined to SYSPRINT to the dataset", the suggestions for dataset SYS1.OPS.SLGOUT are:

 . DCB: RECFM=VB LRECL=137 BLKSIZE=882
 . Allocation: CYL(1,1)

Note: The dataset would be best as a temporary dataset.
