Postby prabu_cts » Thu Jun 10, 2010 9:40 pm

guys there are so many things in spool when i try to find errors in a job....

things like
jesmsgclg
jesjcl
sysprint
syslist
and so on...

so where should i look to find out the exact error!!!

there is a provision for us to find abends easily as it gets written to abendaid automatically but i find it difficult find the other errors...

help me out and sorry if this post already exists i tried some keywords but couldn't find any... so i started this thread!!!


thanks in advance

JESMSGLG will show the overall status of the job, and the resulting return-code of each step, as well as, in the case of a abend, the abend message and associated details.

JESYSMSG will show the more detailed step information, such as datasets used and their disposition, JCL errors, and other relevant diagnostic details.

Also, it will depend on what program was executing at the time of abend. If it's a user written program, there can be explanation in associated SYSOUT; if it's some sort-jobs, SYSOUT must have the details...

A system exit is required to display COND CODE (and other end-of-step info) in the JESMSGLG. Not all sites will have this.
