User wants to use the AUTOCMD member to start CA Products and CAS9 from a COMMNDxx due to timing differences in IPL and the other CA products

The CAS9 proc contains the following DD NAME:

//*                DD  DISP=SHR,DSN=&CAW0OPTN(&USERCMD)

The comments in the CAS9 proc note the default settings for each member

What functions do the two different members, CAUSRCMD and CAUTOCMD, perform? 





The CAUTOCMD member of CAW0OPTN will start other CA products such as CA1(TMSINIT), the CCS390 ENF component, CA7ICOM, and CA7ONL while the CAUSRCMD member can be used to start Non-CA Commands such as TSO or TCPIP.

Additional Information

Refer to the comments describing the &AUTOCMD and &USERCMD found in your CAS9 proc.
