Issue/Introduction

Simulate an event with JCLCheck gets error "The exec load file ddname is not allocated. The REXX exec cannot be loaded."
The Simulate panel looks as follows:

Cause

JCLCheck runtime option STDREXX(rexxpgm,ddname)  is used but the ddname is not allocated to the ESP ISPF session

Environment

Release : 12.0

Component : CA ESP WORKLOAD AUTOMATION

                      JCLCHECK WORKLOAD AUTOMATION

Resolution

When the JCLCheck runtime option STDREXX(rexxpgm,ddname) is used, JCLCheck looks for the specified DDname to load the REXX exec instead of using the default SYSEXEC DD.

Therefore the DDname (pointing to the REXX library) must be pre-allocated to the ESP ISPF session before using the SIMULATE function.

- In ESP, the JCLCheck runtime options are normally coded in DDname JCLOPTS.  If JCLOPTS DD is not found, the default runtime options are used.  (STDREXX is not a default option.)

- To see which runtime options are used, run SIMULATE with 'JCLCheck SYSPRINT' set to Y.  SYSPRINT from JCLCheck will show the list of  "OPTIONS IN EFFECT". 

JCLCheck runtime options are documented here:
