I'm serious and learning the hard way. So for 6 months on 4 or 5 assignments I've asked for access to files, libraries, etc... without any luck. The CICS group is outsourced to another company, to get any type of access to anything is an exercise in futility, throw in auditors and I"m lucky I can just login.
The assignment is to gather data on PPT auto install messages from CICS regions, then tell the outsourced vendor these PPTs need to be added because we're shutting off auto install per auditors.
The first LPAR 99.9% of auto installed messages are for PPT entries that exist, these messages aren't coming from the the original applicaiton, when there were PPT tables, but show due to a distributed system using mainframe programs/maps. I wanted to automate checking DFHPG0209 auto install messages against a file of PPT entries existing instead of having to go into every CICS region to determine if the entry is there or not.
I will see if I can access the CSD file, if not I'll just go see if the PPT exists manually like I've been doing.
*** Maybe I'm in the wrong forum is there one for beginners? I've had this position in infastructure for 6 months so I expect I do have a lot to learn and don't want to keep
asking dumb questions on here.
