We are finding WTOs, that previously appeared on the operator's console, are not showing up. The message goes to the SYSLOG with route code 0. This is causing the operator to miss the intended messages.
Missing route codes in the generated messages.
This parameter specifies the single z/OS route code to add to any WTO issued by OPSWTO or ADDRESS WTO when no route codes are specified, no console is specified, and the MCSFLAG is not set to HRDCPY only. This parameter supersedes any z/OS default route code and reduces the number of undeliverable messages.
If the ROUTE code keyword is not used and the parameter WTODEFAULTROUTE is set to 0, the default is taken from the SYS1.PARMLIB CONSOLxx member.
