Issue/Introduction

Is there a way to validate if file systems are properly mounted at IPL time.

We have had a couple of events where the path and the file mount were not available.  This caused a major outage.

Just wanting to see if there was something that OPS/MVS Software could help us with.  I do have the USS running.  But maybe not completely configured.

Environment

Release : 13.5

Component : OPS/MVS

Resolution

OPS/MVS will need to be up in order to have a rule monitor and validate the system.   Create a message rule for message BPXF008I.   In order to make it non-scrollable and high-lighted use:

MSG.DESC = OPSBITS("SYSFAIL")  
  MSG.ROUTE = OPSBITS(1,2)  

Again, OPS/MVS will need to be active for this to work.
