JCL for printer :: An Urgent request

Postby anooppthomas » Wed Oct 07, 2009 6:59 pm

Dear All:

I need to print some data to a printer attached to our network

My Printer name is trv1-std-003. (The name in Windows network)

In my SDSF printer display shows different name as follows:

PRINTER Status SForms SClass
PRT5 DRAINED TEST K
PRT6 INACTIVE TEST M3
PRT7 DRAINED IND 3
PRT8 DRAINED STD 3
PRT10 DRAINED STD 3
PRT12 DRAINED STD 1
PRT97 DRAINED STD S
PRT98 INACTIVE DCEN K
PRT99 DRAINED STD 1
R20.PR1 INACTIVE STD E

How can I identify that which is my printer. <--- Question 1

Also please connect your answers with the following parameter. <--- Question 2
//ddname DD SYSOUT=(output class,form,writer), DEST=name



The corresponding workselction in the SDSF printer display shows:
Work-Selection
(W,R,Q,PRM,LIM,F/UCS,FCB,P)
<--- what are these parameters ? <--- Question 3


Thanks & Regards,
Anoop Thomas

Q1. You must determine which application is connecting the printer to your system and what DEST-id assigned.. JES2, VPS, etc. You will need to ask someone there.

Q2. When you know the DEST-id, then use your JCL statement and give the DEST, the proper CLASS and FORM as shown in SDSF. NOTE: You have WRITER and FORM in the wrong positions SYSOUT=(class,writer,form).

Q3. The WS (work selection) parameters control how work is selected for the printer. The parameters before the slash must match the current settings on the printer definition. Read the JES2 Initialization Reference for the details.

Hello,

If you actually believe your request is/was urgent, the first place you should ask is your support people or your manager. . .
Hope this helps,
