CEMT alternative to CECI LINK PROGRAM???

Postby xboss » Thu Feb 16, 2012 10:36 pm

I have to execute same program to 20 odd CICS regions. I know I can execute logging into 20 region each time and execute CECI LINK PROGRAM(PROGRAM-NAME). But I am looking for an alternative way through batch if possible. I can run CEMT command through CAFC batch job, so I was looking for CEMT command that would do exactly same as CECI LINK PROGRAM (if any). Also, looking at AFCP2021 manual, I didn't find CAFC has CECI API, I might be wrong here. My apology, one thing I did not look is if CAFC has its own way to execute program on CICS regions.

Why not use
although the questions arise, why do you need to execute the same program in 20 regions? is this a one-off action or something that needs to be done daily / hourly / weekly / monthly or on some other schedule? If not a one-off, why not use the CICS facilities to execute the program? etc, etc, etc -- LOTS of questions.
