Can an IDMS batch program access IDMS CV storage pools?

Environment

Release : All releases.
Component : CA IDMS.

Resolution

No.
Only programs running inside the IDMS address space can issue GET STORAGE  and FREE STORAGE commands.
This means they must have a PROTOCOL of IDMS-DC.
DC-BATCH is not enough.

If such a process must be initiated in batch, use a UCFBATCH jobstep to invoke an online program to do the storage access.
