I've got an interesting project here, and I'm wondering if what I'm thinking might even be possible.

I'm writing a console automation routine for this message:

IEF244I INIT <JOBNAME> - UNABLE TO ALLOCATE 1 UNIT(S)

The storage guys want me to just cancel the job, i.e:

$CJ( jobid)

and they're not asking for any notifications or emails when this happens.

I was just thinking, it would be really cool if I could write a brief explanation into the job's JESMSGLG as to why it was cancelled. I've never heard of it being done, but is it feasible somehow?

A JES2 command can write a message to the JOBLOG if you have the jobID. Not sure what else you would provide besides the "Unable to allocate" for a reason?

$d m j29,’your message here’

Also, have you looked at ALLOCxx in PARMLIB to take actions for these instances?
