Possibility of a mock run in CA-7.

Post by Shriram » Mon May 25, 2015 4:26 pm


For a new project there is good amount of change on scheduling side. In this we are putting 75 jobs (and possibly more in future) Jobs in CA-7 in production. Before we put these change in production, we want to test them and we want to test these Jobs in CA-7 only for JCL errors and dependencies. We put TYPRUN=SCAN but the drawback is that it does not post the next Job in CA-7. Can there be a way, to test the dependencies and JCL errorsin them?

Some pointer on this is appreciated.

Have you contacted the vendor? They can provide you with more information about how to do what you want. And if your site is licensed for the product, you are entitled to use vendor support.

I would like to repeat Robert's statements... and along with that you should also remember the "RBS CA-7" story.
