Technote (troubleshooting)


This document provides information on how to view or dump the ASMINFO Advanced Analysis (AA) Macro.

Resolving the problem

To view or dump the ASMINFO macro, you should do the following:

1. From the operating system command line, type the following:


Press the Enter key.
2. Sign in with a service tool profile and password that has authority to Display/Alter/Dump in SST.
3. Select Option 1 - Start a service tool, and press the Enter key.
4. Select Option 4 - Display/Alter/Dump, and press the Enter key.
5. a. To view the data on the screen, select Option 1 - Display/Alter storage, and press the Enter key.
b. To dump to a spooled file (for sending the data to IBM), select Option 2 - Dump to printer, and press the Enter key.
6. Select Option 2 - Licensed Internal Code (LIC) data, and press the Enter key.
7. Select Option 14 - Advanced analysis, and press the Enter key.
8. On the Select Advanced Analysis Command screen, there is a list of available advanced analysis macros (under the Command column). Since ASMINFO is not listed, type 1 (Select) next to the top blank line under the Command column. In the blank line, type ASMINFO, and press the Enter key.
9. In the Options field, type -ASP nnn -r 50000 (where nnn is the 3-digit ASP number; in other words, if using ASP 33, use 033 for ASP number), and press the Enter key.
Note: The option of -r 50000 allows for the last 50,000 records in the ASMINFO in the event that the data could have wrapped.
10. If the output is to be spooled (Option 2 in Step 5b above), the spooled file name is QPCSMPRT.
