Tuesday Tip from Julia Giancola, Senior Support Engineer, for May 19, 2015
When I try to increase the "maximum number of output members" for ADROUT in SET OUT SITE, it gives the message 1-ICPSSETP21E - Maximum Outputs cannot be altered if Directory exists.
You cannot increase the number of outputs without also changing the directory name. So, there are two ways of doing this.... 1. Change the directory name and the number of outputs... recycle CICS run VLSUTIL format on ADROUT / SCPSUTIL INIT NOTE: If you do this, you will lose your old outputs so if you still need them, you will want to print them out. You will also need to redefine your destinations. I would suggest to run a VLSUTIL BACKUP ADRPNL/ADROUT before doing this. 2. Run VLSUTIL EXPANDDIR NOTE: You will need to make sure that all activity is halted on ADROUT ; so the recommendation is to close the file before you run EXPANDDIR. Information on EXPANDDIR can be found in the CA IPC Implementation Guide, Chapter 6, How to Expand the PSS Spool File Directory.
