General Information

This section contains general information, i.e. SYSGEN hints/tips. 1. 01/10/03 Please add the following text to section 3 in upgrade ODF710 subset J272712 The On Demand ARSLOAD program is available for use to ODF customers to interface ODF with On Demand for z/OS and OS390. ARSLOAD has a loadexit function that invokes a user exit, ARSULOAD, which builds builds DST table entries for reports that ARSLOAD has loaded from the On Demand base data into ODF system storage, from which they may be printed. The ARSLOAD program invokes the "arsuload" exit. The arsuload exit shipped with the base ODMP system is a null program that does not perform any function. A "functioning" version of arsuload is shipped with the ODF system. This new version is installed in /usr/lpp/ars/bin/exits via the SMPE process. This functioning version of arsulaod is the interface between ODF and ODMP, and will cause the reports loaded to ODMP to be identified by the ODF system. The following JCL may be modified to run in your operating environment to execute ARSLOAD and build DST entries: //STEP1 EXEC PGM=ARSLOAD,REGION=0M,TIME=NOLIMIT, // PARM=('/ -u USERID -p PASSWORD -n -h // system -g APPLGROUP /dev/null') //STEPLIB DD DISP=SHR,DSN=ARS.V7R1M0.SARSLOAD // DD DISP=SHR,DSN=DB2.V6R1M0.SDSNEXIT // DD DISP=SHR,DSN=DB2.V6R1M0.SDSNLOAD // DD DISP=SHR,DSN=IOD.ACIF.V2R2M0.SAPKMOD1 //SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=* //CEEDUMP DD SYSOUT=T //INPUT DD DISP=OLD,DSN=REPORTNAME //DSNAOINI DD PATH='/usr/lpp/ars/config/cli.ini' //SYSOUT DD SYSOUT=* The Migration Guide LY37-3746 can be obtained from the IBM Publications Center Portal at: http://www.ibm.com/shop/publications/order.
