Question:

Is it ok if the #PSPNEW step flushes when loading the PSP?

Answer:

Some steps in the CA MICS PSP load jobs (ESDyymmL, ESDJES3A) may be bypassed (flushed) when the job executes successfully.

The #PCHFND step checks to see if a sharedprefix.MICS.HOLD.PC.TEXT dataset exists. If it exists, the condition code for the step is set to 2.  The next step is #PCHNEW, which allocates a sharedprefix.MICS.HOLD.PC.TEXT dataset. If the #PCHFND step completes with condition code 2, the #PCHNEW step is bypassed (flushed).
