CA 7 Workload Automation

Issue/Introduction

We are in the process of automating ticket generation for all the CA 7 abends and have enabled WTO=YES in the init deck.  This worked earlier and wrote the following messages:

CA-7.SMF3 JOB CA7TEST1 (0005/0002737/CA7TST  ) ON SYST FAILED: JCL ERROR                                                              
CA-7.SMF3 JOB CA7TEST1 (0006/0002741/CA7TST  ) ON SYST FAILED: JOB 0004

Now, the CA-7.SMF3 line is not longer being written in the syslog and the CA7 logs.  Only the following is being written:

$HASP100 CA7TEST1 ON INTRDR      DUMMY JOB .

What needs to be done to write CA-7.SMF3 records in logs.

                                                         

Environment

Release : 12.1

Resolution

To address the issue where message CA-7.SMF3 is not generated even though WTO=YES is specified on the RESTART statement in the CA 7 init deck, ensure that ICOM is active.  Whenever CA 7 does not receive feedback regarding SMF records, jobs will sit in the ready que.  In order for  CA 7 to receive the SMF information so that the  CA-7.SMF3 messages is generated, ICOM must be active on the system where the jobs will execute.
