    When you execute several Transfers in separate EXEC-Steps of one Job you get a XCOMINIT and XCOMLOG Dataset for each Step separately:

    JobName JobId     Queue    Datasets

    XCOMSCED JOB03732 OUTPUT          9

    ------------------------------------------

    Cmd      DDname   Stepname Procstep Status

    ________ JESMSGLG JES2              HELD 

    ________ JESJCL   JES2              HELD 

    ________ JESYSMSG JES2              HELD 

    ________ XCOMINIT STEP01            HELD  

    ________ XCOMLOG  STEP01            HELD 

    ________ XCOMINIT STEP02            HELD 

    ________ XCOMLOG  STEP02            HELD 

    ________ XCOMINIT STEP03            HELD 

    ________ XCOMLOG  STEP03            HELD

     

    This is how JES works: for each EXEC-Step all necessary Datasets are created and put into the Job Output.

    If you want to restrict the output of several transfers into one XCOMLOG dataset, you can use Parameter NEWXFER instead of several Steps. The advantage of NEWXFER is that you only need to specify the changed parameters for the following transfer, all Parameters not specified are taken from the previous transfer or from Defaults. An explanation of parameter NEWXFER can be found in the Using Manual for XCOM for z/OS 12.0, available at this link: https://docops.ca.com/xdtz/12-0/en/using/the-batch-interface/sysin01-parameters.
