Introduction:

User wants to use the AUTOCMD member to start CA Products and CAS9 from a COMMNDxx due to timing differences in IPL and the other CA products

Question:

The CAS9 proc contains the following DD NAME:

//AUTOCMDS DD  DISP=SHR,DSN=&CAW0OPTN(&AUTOCMD)
//*                DD  DISP=SHR,DSN=&CAW0OPTN(&USERCMD)

The comments in the CAS9 proc note the default settings for each member
&AUTOCMD = CAUTOCMD
&USERCMD = CAUSRCMD

What functions do the two different members, CAUSRCMD and CAUTOCMD, perform? 

  

Environment:
z/os
Answer:

The CAUTOCMD member of CAW0OPTN will start other CA products such as CA1(TMSINIT), the CCS390 ENF component, CA7ICOM, and CA7ONL while the CAUSRCMD member can be used to start Non-CA Commands such as TSO or TCPIP.

Additional Information:

Refer to the comments describing the &AUTOCMD and &USERCMD found in your CAS9 proc.
