Issue/Introduction

A command is being routed to a remote system to check the status of a pre-requisite resource. Although the resource is UP the dependent resource is not being started.

ROUTE SYSA,SSMPLEXC QUERY STCTBL AD15STRT 

Environment

Release:
Component: OPSMVS

Resolution

Update the Route command in the SSMXPREQ RULE to include the parenthesis around the system name. This can resolve various problems with command responses not being picked up by OPS when issued on another system.

Address Oper "Command(Route ("xp_sys"),SSMXCMD QUERY "xp_tbl xp_name") Cmdwait(10)",
"STOPRESP('END OF') INTERVAL(0)"


The foreign message processing attributes in MPF can affect cross system responses as well as the value of the SSIMSG parm in OPSMVS. Using parenthesis around the system causes the ROUTE command to get the responses differently because it's acting like a list of systems even though there is only one system in the list in this case.
