Issue/Introduction

I'm trying to configure our OSF Servers to support ADDRESS IPSEXEC

I have confirmed that both ISPLINK and IPSEXEC are in the LPA.

I have updated OSFSTART to use HowToAllocSPF = "ALLOCSPF"      /* Use the CA sample ISPF allocation */

I have also updated ALLOCSPF for our site specifications and using PROFDSN = "DYNAMIC"

All these OSFSTART and ALLOCSPF appear to run ok and the OSF server starts

but when I run my rexx(TSTESTER) I get the following error.

OPS0997T >>>     SLB1DSN=hlq.OPS.OPSSLIB.USER                    
OPS0997T *-* 184:  ADDRESS "ISPEXEC"                              
OPS0997T *-* 185:    "LIBDEF ISPSLIB DATASET ID('"SLB1DSN"') COND"
OPS3092O No ISPF host command environment is available            
OPS0997T +++      RC(20)  

I suspect I'm missing some additional configuration but not sure what it is. 

Environment

Release : 13.0 and above

Component : OPS/MVS

Resolution

You need to do an ISPSTART before you do any ISPEXEC calls.

For example, from an OPS rule:

ADDRESS 'OSF' "ISPSTART CMD(OI ISPFTEST)"

where ISPFTEST is the name of a REXX program that uses ISPF services
