STEPLIB DD statement - SYNCLINK

Postby jaggz » Mon Apr 22, 2013 7:55 pm

Hello All,

In our shop the DFSORT is a primary product for Sort and we have SYNCSORT as the secondary. Could someone please share a sample JCL which helps in fetching the SYNCSORT modules from SYNCLINK libraries from STEPLIB DD ?

Any help would be much appreciated.

Regards,
Jaggz

This is a question which MUST be directed to your site support group. Nobody on this forum is likely to work for your site, and only someone working AT YOUR SITE will know the data set names (and so forth) to answer your question.

Assuming SYNCAUTH, SYNRENT and SYNCLPA are three separate libraries,you need three DD statements -
//STEPLIB DD DISP=SHR,DSN=SYNCAUTH
// DD DISP=SHR,DSN=SYNCRENT
// DD DISP=SHR,DSN=SYNCLPA

Assuming SYNCAUTH is an authorized load library, you should be aware that concatenating an authorized load library to non-authorized load libraries means the authorized load library is no longer authorized -- which may cause your sort to fail. This is just one of the reasons I recommended you discuss your needs with your site support group. Your site support group likely already has JCL to do what you want, or they can help you get the JCL right since they will know the environment and we on the forum do not.

Mr. Sample is correct. I forgot about the issue of including a non APF library in the mix. FWIW, I suspect all three libraries are APF, so that may not be a problem.

If I remember my Syncsort correctly the SYNCAUTH library contain the routines for tape sort only?
so a steplib with these libraries should work.. non of which require APF authorization.
SYNCLINK
SYNCRENT
if the SVC is not in LPA the SYNCLPA is also needed
