  • Closed as new function.

Error description

  • Sending commands used to control an LT in WebSphere BI for FN is
    only possible within MERVA, from the CMD function. This inhibits
    the remote control of LTs independent of a user who has signed
    on to MERVA.

    Batch program DWSILCMD sends a single command used to control
    an LT to the WebSphere BI for FN service DNF_ILC_CMD
    and prints the command response. For example, the commands
    LOGIN, SELECT, QUIT, LOGOUT, or QUERY commands. DWSILCMD calls
    the MFS user exit DSLMU004 which in turn calls the non-MERVA
    program DSLDNIC. DSLDNIC is the main program of the Remote
    Login feature.
    This feature actually sends the command from DWSILCMD to the
    DNF_ILC_CMD service and presents the command response from
    DNF_ILC_CMD to DWSILCMD. DWSILCMD retrieves the command
    response from the TOF field DSLCRESP.
    DWSILCMD uses one or two input parameters.
    Parm1
    This is the WebSphere BI for FN command. The keyword DNFILC
    followed by a blank precedes the command. The maximum length of
    the command including keyword and blank is 70 characters.
    This parameter is required.
    Parm2
    This is a MERVA user ID. This parameter is optional. If
    specified DWSILCMD puts it together with the origin ID from
    the associated MERVA user file record to the DSLTUCB control
    block for use by the Remote Login feature. This parameter is
    only required if one of the following conditions is met:
    1. In the Remote Login feature table DSLDNIT, parameter ALTUID
       is omitted or specified with three asterisks.
    2. The command (first parameter) does not contain an LT name.
       That is, -lt or -ltname is omitted.
    If an error occurred, DWSILCMD terminates with return code 8.
    MERVA must be active when DWSILCMD is run.
    

Problem conclusion

Temporary fix

Comments

  • This is the JCL to run DWSILCMD.
    
    //........ JOB ........
    //DWSILCMD EXEC PGM=DWSILCMD,REGION=0M,
    // PARM='parm1,parm2'
    //STEPLIB  DD  DSN=MERVA.SDSLLODB,DISP=SHR
    //         DD  DSN=WMQ.SCSQAUTH,DISP=SHR
    //SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*
    //SYSUDUMP DD SYSOUT=*
    
    MERVA.SDSLLODB contains the MERVA batch programs.
    WMQ.SCSQAUTH contains the WebSphere MQ programs.
    For running in a batch environment, the Remote Login feature
    program DSLDNIC must be link-edited with the WebSphere
    MQ batch stub CSQBSTUB.
    These are examples how to specify input parameters for DWSILCMD.
    
    //DWSILCMD EXEC PGM=DWSILCMD,REGION=0M,
    // PARM='DNFILC login -lt IBMADEFFA'
    
    A LOGIN command for LT IBMADEFFA is provided. A MERVA user ID is
    not provided.
    
    //DWSILCMD EXEC PGM=DWSILCMD,REGION=0M,
    // PARM='*DNFILC login -lt IBMADEFFA,MAS'
    
    The same LOGIN command and the MERVA user ID MAS are provided.
    An asterisk precedes the keyword DNFILC. Then DWSILCMD prints
    both the input parameter command string and the separated
    parameters (command and user ID).
