Sometimes the SMF areas are switched when OPS is DOWN so the message IEE391A is not intercept and the SMF dump job is not executed.
Release : 13.5
Component : OPS/MVS
One possible alternative is to create a rule that checks the SMF areas at OPS startup and runs the dump jobs if required.
1) Create a rule with just the )INIT section to call a REXX program. This rule must be set auto-enable but it is not possible to enable it.
ADDRESS OSF 'OI DUMPSMF'
2) The rule code above calls the REXX program DUMPSMF when OPS is starting. The code of DUMPSMF can be:
ADDRESS OPER 'D SMF'
PARSE VAR LINE PREF "-" DSN VOL BLKS FULL MESSAGE
IF MESSAGE = 'DUMP REQUIRED' THEN
ADDRESS OPER 'S SMFDUMP,MAN='DSN
