Is it possible to activate an ACT (Application Characteristics Table) of a different name than the ACT defined in the TPX PROC/JCL without having to stop and restart TPX?
//TPXZA PROC TPREFIX='TPX.PROD', TPX DATASET NAME PREFIX // VNODE=APTPXPRD, THE TPX APPL MEMBER IN VTAMLST // SMRT=SMRTPRD, SYSTEM OPTIONS TABLE // ACT=ACTPRD, APPL CHARACTERISTICS TABLE // PRTB=, PRINT DESTINATION TABLE // VMSK=, VIRTUAL TERMINAL MASKING TABLE // TMSK=, TERMINAL OPTIONS TABLE // PPS=, USER PASSTHRU PRINT TABLE // OVAC=, OV/MVS APPL CONNECTIVITY TABLE // SAMT=, SECURITY ACTION/MESSAGE TABLE // MODETAB=, MODE TABLE NAME // DUMP=X, DUMP SYSOUT CLASS // OUT=X LOG AND OTHER SYSOUTS
Can I change to a different ACT than the one specified in the CA TPX PROC without having to cycle TPX?
