BPXWDYN sysouts go to multiple outputs

Postby tsdjim » Thu Jan 31, 2013 12:02 am

I am running an application that uses BPXWDYN internally to allocate a number of SYSOUTs with different DDnames within one job . The parameters used for the dynamic allocations are RECFM(..) LRECL(..) SYSOUT(X). The outputs are produced correctly but are as separate individual job outputs in the JES Queue ( as though spin was specified) . I need them to be all within one job, ie it should show as one entry in the output, just as other normal jobs.

Is there any parameter that controls this. PS I do not use spin.

I think the behavior you're discussing is the system design and intent. I sort of vaguely recall there is some trick you can do so the outputs behave as you appear to want, but I don't recall what it is.
