CA Workload Automation Restart Option for z/OS Schedulers Tuesday Tip by Alisa Puckett, Sr. Support Engineer for Jun 30, 2015
CA Workload Automation Restart Options for z/OS Schedulers (CA 11) uses a default subsystem
name of CAL7. To use a different subsystem other than the default subsystem, you
can either code the U11SSSEX exit or use the a DD dummy override.
The ddname for the override is specified as follows:
Where xxxx is the subsystem name that is to be selected. The override DD can appear
anywhere in the JCL of the U11RMS step as a //@SSNxxxx DD DUMMY statement.
The override DD can also be used in utilities and reports such as U11MGR, U11RCP, U11OBD etc.
User exit U11SSSEX can be set up so that subsystem selection is based on jobname,
or other criteria like job class, accounting fields, or userids. A sample of this
exit can be found in the CAL7OPTN (PPOPTION prior to r11.0) library.
For additional information regarding U11SSSEX and the override DD, see the
'Using MSSF ' and 'Additional MSSF Considerations' sections in the CA Workload
Automation Restart Option for z/OS Schedulers Programming Guide.
