Identifying which specific CA Bundl files an LSERV task is servicing


Article ID: 233815


Updated On:




We have CA Bundl and CA LSERV installed in multiple LPAR's. How can we identify which Bundl VSAM files are being serviced by which LSERV task?

Specifically, we need to be able to identify the NAME of the Bundl "DPMFBSF" file and which LSERV task is servicing it.


Release : 5.0

Component : Bundl


- To identify the DPMFBSF file for a particular Bundl system, you will need to know which LSERV task is servicing that Bundl's VSAM files. You will also need to know the correct SSN$ and DDN$ values for LSERV and the Bundl VSAM files.  

1. If you are not sure what the SSNAME (SSN$) value is for the CA LSERV task that is servicing the CA Bundl VSAM files and/or you are not sure of the DDN$ value being used, you can do a mainframe logon to CA Bundl and on the primary options screen, in the COMMAND line, type SYSID and hit the enter key. The values for SSN$ and DDN$ being used for the CA Bundl region that you have logged on to will be shown in the TOP LEFT corner of your screen. Example:

LSRV DPMF------------- CA-BUNDL: Primary Options Menu

In the above example, the value for SSN$ is 'LSRV' and the value for DDN$ is 'DPMF'                                         

- The CA LSERV started task is the STC that executes PGM=LDMMAIN. This task control all I/O into and out of the CA Bundl VSAM files. You will need to look at any/all LSERV tasks that you have running on your systems to see what specific Bundl files each task is servicing.

- After selecting the LSERV task, you can identify that LSERV tasks SSN$ value by doing a FIND on the SSNAME parameter. Example:

//L1BUND50  PROC SSNAME=LSRV,MEMBER=LDMPRM50 - (In this example, the SSN$ value for this LSERV task is 'LSRV')

- To identify which Bundl BSF file(s) are being serviced by this particular LSERV task, do another FIND on "DPMFBSF" where you will see messages similar to the following, which identify the name of the Bundl BSF file being serviced: 

LDM0090I                 OPT(MINLEN=446)                 
LDM0503I ????BSF . successfully added 

In the above example that value that you see in place of the 4 question marks will be the DDN$ value from your Bundl 'SYSID' command in item 1 above. Also In this example, the actual NAME of the Bundl BSF file is "<hlq>.BUNDL.R50.DPMFBSF". This is name that you would look for in TSO. This is the file that you will have to edit via File Aid/File Master as outlined in your previous case #32972699.
