Scheduler Job Management


Autosys Workload Automation can send a request to submit a job that is defined to Scheduler.  This Knowledge Document will describe components needed and the setup requirements.






The Autosys Workload Automation product must be installed.

CAICCI connections must be defined in the CCIRMTD.RC file. The CCIRMTD.RC file should contain one LOCAL statement that points to the local machine, and REMOTE statement(s) that point to the mainframe system(s) where Scheduler is active. The LOCAL and REMOTE statement will contain the following:

 LOCAL = hostname cciname startup [ALIAS=alias_name]

 REMOTE = hostname cciname  32768 startup [port=nnnn]

In the REMOTE statement, the hostname is the node name and the cciname is the SYSID value from the CCITCPGW started task.
In the LOCAL statement, the alias name may be necessary if the local machine name is greater than 8 characters.

Requirements on the z/OS system where Scheduler resides

Scheduler must be initialized with the following CAIRIM CAS9 CAIJGEN options:

  XPLAT=YES                   YES to allow the submission of cross-platform         
  XPMON=monitor-name    must be a 7 character unique name 
  XPRET=30|days              number of days a node is to remain idle before Scheduler deletes the node 
  XPS=YES                       if XPS router is to run CA Scheduler address space

CA-XPS (Cross-Platform Scheduling Common Component) must be installed. CA-XPS is included with Common Services for z/OS(CCS) tape. The FMID is CCF9E00. The XPS router can be running in the Scheduler address space, in another Broadcom scheduling product's address space, or in its own address space. 

To run the XPS router in the Scheduler address space, the CAS9 CAIJGEN option XPS must be set to YES.

CAICCI is used for communication between Autosys and the XPS router. CAENF is used to activate this communication. In the CAENF JCL, add the PROTOCOL(TCPIPGW) statement to existing PDS member CCIPARMS that is allocated on the ENFPARMS DD statement. This protocol statement will automatically start the started task CCITCPGW when CAENF is activated.

CAENF must have the event type of CAXPSFBK installed which is used for tracking these jobs and the CAL2DCM2.   The following statements is needed in the CAENF ENFPARMS dd.
