INQUIRE-Steps for scheduled transfers

  • 1.  INQUIRE-Steps for scheduled transfers

    Posted 04-29-2014 09:56 AM

    When handing over a transfer to the XCOM Server on z/OS your Job normally ends with message
      XCOMM0300I REQUEST # nnnnnn PROCESSED SUCCESSFULLY

      This only informs that the transfer was succesfully scheduled - but what about the transfer itself?
    You can use a TYPE=INQUIRE Step after the TYPE=SCHEDULE Step to get informations on that transfer.
    For that you need to do the following:
    1. Define an Inquire dataset (RECFM=FB,DSORG=PS,LRECL=80)
       This dataset contains informations on the transfer.
    2. Add a TYPE=INQUIRE Step which will check the status of the job every 10 seconds until the INQWAIT-time (up to 99 hours) is expired.

    The Returncode of that Step then informs you about the success of the transfer.
    Possible Returncodes are:
     0: Transfer ended succesful
     4: Inquire dataset empty
     8: Unable to access Inquire dataset
    36: Transfer still active
    40: Transfer did not complete succesful
