After applying the DSINSVC USERMOD to change the Dispatch CVKEY, and then adding the appropriate PPT entries to support the new CVKEY,  is there a way to verify the changes were successful and see what KEY the Dispatch related programs are running in?



Release : 11.7

Component : Dispatch


There are a couple of different options that will identify what storage protection key (CVKEY) the Dispatch CAISYS01 program is running in:


Option 1 - To see what KEY the program is running in via DISPATCH:

- Logon to Dispatch

- At the Dispatch ENTER NEXT TASK CODE prompt...

  Type: DCPROFILE  [enter]

  On the resulting 1st screen look for:

  PRIMARY STORAGE            
  PROTECT KEY:             ??

- To exit...

* Continue to press [enter] until you're back to the ENTER NEXT TASK CODE prompt  

Option 2 - To see what KEY the program is running via SYSVIEW:

- Select 'LOG' from the SYSVIEW MENU
- Issue a '/D PPT' command
- Review the log showing the display command output, find the CAISYS01 program and check KEY Column
