Trying to issue the ESP SUSPEND command on a z/OS console and getting the following error:
F ESP,SUSPEND prefix.event
ESP401W INVALID COMMAND, SUSPEND
Not all ESP operator commands can be entered via z/OS modify command on a console.
SUSPEND is among those commands that are not supported.
As an alternative, a pseudo command can be used to trigger a batch job to issue the actual ESP command.
A CA OPS/MVS command rule can be used to create the pseudo command.
The JCL to issue the ESP command can be:
//STEP1 EXEC PGM=ESP,PARM='SUBSYS(ESP)'
//STEPLIB DD DISP=SHR,DSN=prefix.CD7YLOAD
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*
//SYSIN DD *
