Hi All,

I have a small issue regarding the ISPPLIB.

When i try to define a dataset, say, XX@XXXX.ISPPLIB.CL,using LIBDEF, i am unable to append to the ISPPLIB.

My library defintion is,
LIBDEF ISPPLIB DATASET ID('XX@XXXX.ISPPLIB.CL') SHR.

But this does not append the dataset to ISPPLIB. It adds to some other DDName.

I want this dataset to be allocated to ISPPLIB.
Anyone know how to do this..

Thanks
Sriram

LIBDEF is a temporary fix for adding a library into a concatenation without having to log off and rebuild the ISPF environment.

The big question is - Does it work when you use LIBDEF, of do you experience problems ?

I dont experience any problems while using the LIBDEF. But, i want to see the panel design using the option 7.2 from the ISPF main panel..

What I've usually done when I needed to change the ISPF library allocations was to create my own logon procedure based on the one that my userid defaulted to.

With RACF protecting the logon PROC name, it is important to keep the name the same, but just defined in your own REXX / CLIST libray.

Basically once you have logged on, get into the TSO ready state by entering X on the command line, and then execute your own version of the logon PROC.

However, one site had built in an exit to intercept the TSO ready state and then fully log you out. If this is the case then you need to talk to your sysprogs to allow you to have your own proc defined in the system logon PROC library.

You can use LIBDEF using 7.6, as a preceding step to 7.2.

o71fer has the solution for you sriram_srec. I would like to add the when you start the Dialog Test Facility (DTF), it is launched with a new applid and pool. So unless PASSLIB is used, any library allocated via LIBDEF prior to the DTF will not be available.

expat, I would not call LIBDEF a "fix" at all. It is a Dialog Service developed by IBM for extending the installation default ISP%LIB contatenations. Keep in mind that there can be numerous (e.g. dozens, hundreds or more) application specific ISPF libraries used by a mix of installation applications and vendor products. It would be highly inefficient to allocate all of them at once or to have all of the members from those libraries stored in only a few installation libraries.

regards,

tim
