I am looking for the the JES3 equivalents for these JES2 JCL statements:
Code:
   /*ROUTE XEQ nodename
   /*JOBPARM S=SYS1


Reading the JCL reference, I want to say it is this:
Code:
   //*ROUTE XEQ nodename   
   //*MAIN SYSTEM=(SYS1)


But the terms used in the JES3 chapter are unfamiliar, for example: 'Indicates that the job is to run on the named processor'.

I would like someone to confirm my guess.

Yes, you are correct. The MAIN statement for JES3 indicates where to execute the job as well as what JES options are for the job.

Pedro -
  • //*MAIN - I think your guess is correct, but you should confirm how the JES3 system names are assigned in your shop relative to the system names in JES2. Many other //*MAIN parameters seem to mimic JES2 /*JOBPARM statement parameters.
  • //*ROUTE XEQ seems to mimic the JES2 /*ROUTE XEQ and /*XMIT statements. There seem to be detail differences, so you may have to experiment.
I can't say I'm a real JES3 expert. Back in my product support days we would occasionally run JES3, but never with networking or multiple JES3 "main" systems. We always hated it; this was before SDSF support of JES3 and we didn't have Flasher or an equivalent product.
