OPS/MVS Event Management & Automation

Issue/Introduction


I would like to invoke OPS/MVS to issue ACF2 commands. What I can do in a regular REXX EXEC does not appear to be available from OPS/MVS. If I issue the ACF2 TSO command I receive message:

OPS3083S COMMAND REQUESTED MORE INPUT - COMMAND ABORTED       

I want to be able to issue an ACF2 CHANGE command to automate changing the status of a Logonid. Is there something available in OPS/MVS that would allow me an interface to ACF2 to do this?


Environment

Release : 13.0

Component : OPS/MVS

Resolution

Recommend making use of the REXX program that has been set up.   Then to issue the command should be as simple as submitting the REXX.  

From SDSF issue command: 

          /)rexxpgm,

                    where ) = the OSFCHAR parameter value , and where rexxpgm = the name of the REXX code to be executed.

The code rexxpgm would reside in a REXX dataset that is referenced on the SYSEXEC DD of the OPSOSF started task.  

If issuing the command from OPS command area, then there is no need to use the slash, and the command would look like: 

)rexxpgm
