Issue/Introduction

The SSMBEGIN WTOR times out if not responded within 5 minutes. Is there a way to allow it to wait longer for a reply?

For example:

16:57:53 0000800766 63 SSMBEGIN Enter desired Stateman startup option (1-5) and/or mode (A/P/I):

...

17:02:53 0000801173 IEE400I THESE MESSAGES CANCELLED - 63.
17:02:53 0000801174 OPS1370H OPSMAIN  X'4000' X'0000' X'0000' NONE  300 SSMBEGIN   Starting with option 1 in ACTI
                            VE mode.
17:02:53 0000801175 SSMBEGIN Starting with option 1 in ACTIVE mode.

Environment

Release : 14.0

Component : OPS/MVS

Resolution

The SSMBEGIN rule as delivered in the CCLXRULM library has a hardcoded wait time of 300 seconds (5 minutes).

If necessary, the code can be changed in this section:

/*-------------------------------------------------------------------*/
/*  Wait for a valid reply.                                          */
/*-------------------------------------------------------------------*/
    Call Do_wto "Text('Enter desired Stateman startup option (1-5)",   
                "and/or mode (A/P/I):')",                              
                "Msgid(SSMBEGIN) Reply Wait(300) Route(Mstrinfo)"
