Issue/Introduction

The DADS Plus utility program DADBCNTL prints a report of all the parameters stored in the DADS Plus DADS01 control file after you update one of the parameters. Is  there a way to just print the report without any updates being done ?

 

 

Environment

Z/OS 

CICS 

Resolution

The contents of the DADS01 control file parameters can be printed using the DADBCNTL utility program by specifying only the UPDATE parameter listed in the sample JCL below.

//CNTL EXEC PGM=DADBCNTL
//STEPLIB DD DSN=YOUR DADS LOAD LIBRARY,DISP=SHR
//DADS01 DD DSN=YOUR DADS PLUS CONTROL FILE,DISP=SHR
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=A,DCB=(LRECL=133,RECFM=FBA,BLKSIZE=133)
//SYSIN DD *
UPDATE
//

The DADS Plus control file must closed in CICS before you execute the DADBCNTL utility program. If the DADS Plus control file is open in CICS the DADBCNTL will abend with the following messages

ABEND=S000 U0999
