Issue/Introduction

Question:  

Reading the Telon 5.1 Install manual and comparing it to the comments in the #CUSTCTL Install member, it looks like for the CICS entries in the manual and the comments in #CUSTCTL are not the same. 

 

From the installation manual page 183 

@CICSSRC The CICS source library. Comment this out if not a CICS user. 

Example: CICS.SDFHSRC. 

 

From #CUSTCTL 

 

*********************************************************************** 

*** CICS SRC LIB - DELETE STEP IF NOT CICS USER (E.G., CICS.SDFHSRC 

*********************************************************************** 

FIND #CICSSRC 

REPL SYS1.CICSTS.SDFHMSRC  

 

The comment has CICS.SDFHSRC. But my CICS Library layout indicates it should be CICS.SDFHMSRC. 

 

Answer: 

Looking at the #CICSSRC variable in our JCL #CUSTCTL member, it is obsolete. All the informational items of which we are using, are stored mostly in the SDFHMAC dataset. I've checked the SDFHSRC from 4.1 CICS and also SDFHMSRC from higher versions/releases, and both of these datasets have quite different members, Also I did not find any macro from those datasets in our code. Our code was checked, and every input macro or copybook is from the SDFHMAC dataset. 

 

With native CICS there was no "M" 

CICSSYS.V410.SDFHSRC' 

 

With Transaction server their was an "M" up CTS420 

CICSSYS.CTS410.CICS.SDFHMSRC 

CICSSYS.CTS420.CICS.SDFHMSRC 

 

With CTS5*, there is no SDFHMSRC library 

CICSSYS.CTS510.CICS.SDFH* 

CICSSYS.CTS520.CICS.SDFH*  

CICSSYS.CTS530.CICS.SDFH* 

 

We will remove the FIND #CICSSRC  from #CUSTCTL and also corresponding members (REPL  @CICSSRC) which are using those variables.
