Hi,

I have created 1 new CLIST lib to hold some CLIST execs that I used to execute in another installation. There I could execute them directly from the TSO command line because my lib was already added to the default libraries in TSO.

Does anyone know how to add this lib to the TSO clist default libraries?

Thanks,
Ed

Hello,

You will need to ALLOC your pds to SYSPROC. Something like
Code:
"ALLOC FI(SYSPROC) DA('XXXX.YOUR.PDS') SHR REUSE"


If you issue the ALLOC manually you wil need to do so each time you log on. You might talk with your system support people about changing your profile to include your new library.

Or, you could use ISRDDN, find the entries for SYSPROC and see if there is a library already in the concatenation that you have authority to write member into.

You can add CLIST or REXX libraries dynamically to your default concatenation with the ALTLIB command.

ALTLIB ACTIVATE APPL(CLIST) DA(MYLIB.CLIST) or

ALTLIB ACTIVATE APPL(EXEC) DA(MYLIB.EXEC)

regards,

tim

Hi ED,

It is enough to add the lib name in the GDA dataset. The GDA dataset is usually 'YourMFID.GDA.OS390'. You need to create it by copying from any other ID's and replace with your ID in the name as well as in the content. once u have created add the PDS where u have execs in addition to the default dataset values.After that you need to log off once.. then only the SYSPROC & SYSEXEC datasets will be mapped.

Thanks,
Sarav

This may be a function at your site, but I certainly do not have anything resembling 'YourMFID.GDA.OS390'

I think perhaps that your solution may be site specific.

Hi,

YourMFID means your mainframe User ID... did you try that...?

sarav_cit, respectfully i am certain we all know what yourMFID refers to. the GDA thing that you are referring to is something "homegrown" and specific to your mainframe installation. some shops have similar functions. in the shop i work in, the logon clist executed as part of the tso logon procedure looks for a clist library with a specific name (like your userID.GDA.OS390) and automatically adds it to the SYSPROC concatenation. this is not standard, so the best approach would be to create a clist or rexx exec to perform your personal library allocations at logon time by adding it to the command field of the tso logon screen - ex 'userID.work.exec(mylibs)'. the benefit is that whatever you enter will be remembered in that field for future logons. the exception is that if your session is canceled/timed out the first time you use it. my recommendation is to add it, complete the logon process, logout cleanly and then logon again.

regards,

tim

I somehow think that regarding the above quote, your response was certainly far more diplomatic than mine would have been.

Thank you all for replying. I did use a REXX exec to allocate it.

Thx,
Ed
