The dump should be an unformatted SVC dump.

  1. If the startup parameters for CA-ROSCOE include NOSDUMP, comment it out with an * before bringing up CA-ROSCOE (or recycling ROSCOE)

  2. A CA-ROSCOE problem cannot be diagnosed with an ABENDAID dump
    Sites that have ABENDAID must add the following card to the CA-ROSCOE startup JCL (to turn off ABENDAID.)
    //ABNLIGNR DD DUMMY

  3. Insure that the dump dataset(s) is/are empty

  4. Set the SLIP TRAP as follows -
    NOTE: SLIP TRAPS must be set/issued at a CONSOLE

    SLIP SET,ACTION=SVCD,ENABLE,JOBNAME=roscoe,COMP=0C1,ID=xxxx,
    SDATA=(CSA,GRSQ,LPA,LSQA,NUC,PSA,RGN,SQA,SUM,SWA,TRT),END

    NOTE: The SDATA PARAMETERS are distributed in ROSCOE.SOURCE member SDUMP

  5. Terse the dump before ftping.

  6. Do not use a 3rd party product or format the dump
