Issue/Introduction

Running CA MIM GCMF (eg. MIC)

Asking about the syslog jobid in different LPARs.

  • Why the syslog is overlaying the jobid or STC id.
  • What controls this?

 

For example:

DEFSYS (sysname[[,alias][,smfid]] [,{INITIAL=ACTIVE|FREED}])

DEFSYS (ASYS,A,ASYS,INITIAL=FREED),      /*   NAME, ALIAS, SMFID */
     (BSYS,B,BSYS,INITIAL=FREED),      /*   NAME, ALIAS, SMFID */
     (C2SY,C2,CSYS,INITIAL=FREED)      /*   NAME, ALIAS, SMFID */
      

The ASYS syslog shows:

ASYS     20134 12:00:00.44 A  S4023 00000090  GS...
ASYS     20134 12:00:00.44 A  S4023 00000090  GS...
ASYS     20134 12:00:00.44 A  J1234 00000090  XY...
ASYS     20134 12:00:00.44 A S12345 00000090  CA...
The C2SY syslog shows:

C2SY     20155 00:00:07.15 C2       00000291  IEA989I SLIP 
C2SY     20155 00:00:07.38 C2S17656 00000281  VAN0723I
C2SY     20155 00:00:08.77 C2 J8523 00000291  $HASP100 


Cause

The CA MIM GCMF feature lets you route messages and commands to any or all systems in a complex.

One of the values that can be specified on the GCMINIT statement is EDITMESSAGE.

EDITMESSAGE determines whether GCMF inserts a system alias in the job-stamp field for messages.

Environment

Release : 12.5
Component : MIC

Resolution

CA MIC does not overlay the JOBID, however depending on the GCMINIT definition the JOBID may be altered.

Please review the CA MIM documentation, specifically the section titled (MIC) GCMINIT Statement-Set GCMF Initialization Statements for details.

Additional Information

Beginning with z/OS 1.2, JES2 can dynamically begin generating job numbers greater than the traditional 5-digit limit. Activating the 7-digit job number format impacts the ability of CA MIC to insert the system alias into the job ID field of messages. CA MIC cannot insert the system alias into the job ID field without the possibility of truncating job numbers. Therefore, as CA MIC examines messages, it determines if the 7-digit job format is in effect for a message. If it is, then CA MIC bypasses editing of the job ID field, regardless of the value specified on the GCMINIT EDITMESSAGE parameter.
