RDO entries through batch.

Postby XY09 » Fri Jan 20, 2012 7:52 pm

Hi All,

I want to update RDO entries through batch when the cics region is up and running. i try to update using PGM=DFHCSDUP utility bu no luck. this utility will install or update the entries when the CICS is down. Is there another way to update the entries.


Thanks,
xy09.

Your statement
utility will install or update the entries when the CICS is down.
is directly contradicted by the Resource Definition Guide manual where section 4.1 states
The CICS system definition utility program, DFHCSDUP, is a component of resource definition online (RDO). DFHCSDUP is an offline utility program that allows you to read from and write to a CICS system definition (CSD) file, either while CICS is running or while it is inactive.
So you need to contact your site support group to get the CICS expert to determine whether your problem is specific to your site, or if the problem is something specific to your job.

You did not give any error information. It did not run is not very informative! Maybe the CSD was open in CICS and you could not update it, but the error messages should tell you that.

you can update entries from batch, but you must go online to install them with CEDA transaction. Unless you have software such as BatchCICS-Connect that can
execute the CEDA transaction from batch. (www.batchcics.com)

There is a working solution for issueing CEDA commands from batch published in Xephon CICS Update issue 165 (http://www.cbttape.org/xephon/xephonc/cic9908.pdf). It consists of a CICS assembler program calling DFHEDAP (the program behind CEDA), a REXX programm calling that assembler program using the EXCI interface, and an ISPF panel to enter any valid CEDA command and show the results.

It should be no rocket science to integrate this into a batch process. ;)
