SymDump Batch

Issue/Introduction

Current CAS9 CAIRIM statement has follow:

* CA-SYMDUMP AND INTERTEST BATCH                                      
PRODUCT(CA INTERTEST/SYMDUMP) VERSION(VHB0) INIT(CAVHINIT) PARM(220)  
*                                                                     

Is there a way to make Symdump Batch 'dormant'? 

 

Environment

Release : 11.0

Component : Testing Tools Common Symbolic Component

Resolution

PINT is product intent option setting for specific product(s) initialize or all.

Run CAVHLPAQ report to check current PINT setting.

//LPAQ     EXEC PGM=CAVHLPAQ,REGION=256K
//SYSPRINT DD  SYSOUT=*

If result shows as

PRODUCT INTENT

  DYNAMIC            ON
  INTBAT             ON
  SYMBAT             ON
  INTCICS            ON
  SYMCICS            ON

When PINT set with DYNAMIC ON then CAVHINIT will check all product's license keys and any key available will process product initialization.

HLQ.CAVHJCL(CAVHCONF) has following options:

//SYSIN    DD  *                     
         CAVHCONF  TYPE=CSECT,       
               ABEND_PGM_FILTER=OFF, 
               EXTSEC=NONE,          
               IBSYSPLEX=N,          
               PINT=DYNAMIC,         
               SCHTBSIZE=20,         
               SYMPSWD=12345678,     
               WORKUNIT=SYSDA        
         END                         

Order to specific product(s) initialized, need to specify each product(s) that need initialized and reassembled CAVHCONF.

PINT=(INTCICS,SYMCICS,INTBAT)

Without SYMBAT(SymDump Batch) specified in PINT setting then CAVHLPAQ report should shows as:

PRODUCT INTENT

  DYNAMIC            OFF
  INTBAT             ON
  SYMBAT             OFF
  INTCICS            ON
  SYMCICS            ON
