How to print the MSGCLASS and route to CA-Dispatch

Postby andy_b321 » Sat Feb 19, 2011 3:34 am

A user wants a hardcopy of JCL statements/sys msgs automatically printed daily. Our site uses MSGCLASS=V to route the log to Dispatch, but this app is not able to automatically print the msgclass. is there a way to code the JCL so we can have MSGCLASS go to a printer PLUS have it routed to Dispatch (online viewing) during execution?

Dispatch level 1 support can probably help you better than I can; it's been 2 1/2 years since I had anything to do with Dispatch, but I'll do my best.

First, I do not know any "automatic" way to do this, though Dispatch level 1 support may know a way.

If I understand your post correctly, output class V routes output to Dispatch. Some other output class which you did not specify is your "normal" output class. What you have to do is route the output to class V and your "normal" output class. You can do this using // OUTPUT statements in your JCL, like this -

//A JOB ...
//MSG1 OUTPUT CLASS=V,JESDS=ALL
//MSG2 OUTPUT CLASS=?,JESDS=ALL

You will have to insert your "normal" MSGCLASS into the second OUTPUT statement. Alignment is not critical for these statements, which is why I did not use the code markup. If you want output datasets specified with SYSOUT=* or SYSOUT=V to go to both places, you will have to specify

OUTPUT=(*.MSG1,*.MSG2)

on every DD statement.

first of all, thank you for the quick response.

sorry i failed to mention:
our 'normal' output is sent to output datasets with SYSOUT=(J,report name)

Noted, perhaps combining the msgclass with the normal output is one way.

Yes, you can do that, though the CADDSPLx (if you're running Dispatch 11), or ENFSPL (if you're still running Dispatch 6.0) definition might have to be updated and the //MSG1 OUTPUT statement would need changes. SYSOUT=(J,report name) is the usual way to send output to a Dispatch report. In Dispatch 6.0, specifying the equivalent of SYSOUT=(J,report name) for MSGCLASS output would create a second instance of the report. Dispatch 11 might be able to connect the two reports together, but I make no promises. In any event, I don't think that's what you really want.

When I said, "Some other output class which you did not specify is your 'normal' output class," I meant non-Dispatch output class.
