Reply with quote

Hi All,



My Mainframe Timeout period is 12 hours. If i lost the connection due to internet disturbance or some other reason the tso id would be still running until 12 hours and then it is getting cancelled. I read some threads in the forum to override the logon procedure SYSUSER. I dont have rights to update sysproc. Please let me know what are the ways to ovverride the tso logon proc and which file i need to ovverride to reduce the timeout period.

Thanks.

The preferred method when you have a connection error is to select the RECONNECT option on the LOGON panel. Unless your site customizes the default, put an "S" in front of RECONNECT to rejoin the session rather than wait for it to timeout.

You can just leave the "S" there all the time as it doesn't effect a normal LOGON.

If I tried that option it throws the message USER ID is already in use . Logon rejected. I think i need to understand how to create my own logon proc where i can set the timeout period.

Why are you not working with your site support group to resolve the issue? If your site uses RACF, for example, you may find that the TSO signon procedures are protected by RACF profiles and you will not be able to create your own signon procedure. In all cases, setting up a TSO signon procedure is not a task for an applications person -- only a systems person should be doing this since the signon procedure used has implications about the applications you are allowed access to, sometimes even the tools you are allowed to use.

Most places I've worked, applications programmers who attempted to set up their own TSO signon procedure would be severely reprimanded at best, or terminated, for such an abuse.

On our system we enter the user id followed by a space and the word reconnect.

Hello,

This sometimes happens when the "new" connectoin is via a different terminal-id. You should still be able to re-connect.

As was mentioned before, you should talk with your system support people to learn which is the proper way to reconnect from an ungraceful connection termination.

Also, none of my client's systems would allow such a long timeout. . . fwiw.
