Environment

Release: 5.4
Component: TPX for Z/OS

Resolution

At present this in not possible directly within the TPX VTAMLST member.

At startup, TPX must know about every possible virtual terminal used in order to allocate control structures for them.

You can use TPX batch with Using VTAM Modeling Statements to generate your VTAM APPL definitions. 
Review Set Up the Batch Job for VTAM Modeling Statement Support
An enhancement was implemented in TPX 5.3 that provided for the use OS symbols within the modeling statements.

With the appropriate use of OS symbols and wildcards, it is conceivable that one can use a set of modeling statements
to generate the VTAM APPLs for all of the different LPARs and TPXs that you need.
