Issue/Introduction

For set of HWIDCNAME, it would be nice if I could use a system symbolic we have since we have 2 sites.  Not sure I even care about HWIDCNAME at this point but in order to keep the member generic across our enterprise, this would be helpful.

Environment

Release : 13.5

Component : OPS/MVS BCPII INTERFACE

Resolution

It appears using symbols such as &SSID as follows works so I'm assuming what you want to do should work too. For example, &SSID resolves to OPSS:

SET.&SSID TRACE(ON) SETTRACE(ALL)
SET.&SSID BYPASSAUTOCONNECT(OFF)
SET.&SSID BYPASSAUTOREFRESH(OFF)
SET.&SSID BYPASSENABLEEVENTS(OFF)
SET.&SSID LOGLINELIMIT(5000)
SET.&SSID TOPOBUFSIZE(256000)
SET.&SSID HWICONAME='Company Name'
SET.&SSID HWIDCNAME='Data Center Name'
DIS.&SSID TOPOLOGY
