Although we recommend using the JOB06EOP job to create r11.5 option files and JOB06OP1 to create r11.6 option files, you may also use a simple IEBGENER job to copy an existing option file.
However, the following JCL was successful in creating an alternate R11.x option file after defining the new option file via option 3.2 under TSO:
//your jobcard //COPY EXEC PGM=IEBGENER //SYSUT1 DD DSN=your.r11.x.option.file.EZOPTBL, // DISP=SHR //SYSUT2 DD DSN=your.new.r11.x.option.file.EZOPTBL, // DISP=SHR //SYSPRINT DD DUMMY //SYSIN DD DUMMY
Please note: Just copying the EZOPTBL option file does not place a pointer into the EZTINI member of the r11.x CAILIB.
Please make sure that you include a //EZOPTBL DD statement in any program accessing the created option file.
