I have a requirement of to check whether the VSAM KSDS File is OPEN / ENABLE OR NOT , daily we have to this for so many files using 3.4 with Full File name and give Getenq command or using CICS ( DS91 ) option to check whether the file is open / enable or not , Whether do we have any JCL or Tool to Automatically check whether the VSAM file is OPen or NOT

Thanks

Do you have the Netec "CAFC" product in your 3rd-Party arsenal?

http://www.netec2000.com

How about MacKinney's "Batch to CICS"?

http://www.mackinney.com/products/mainframe-utilities/mackinney_batch_cics.html

If not, then you could write an EXCI (Client) interface from Batch to CICS, passing the file-name in the EXCI commarea.

On the CICS (Server) side, you would need to write a program which issues an INQUIRE FILE API and returns the CVDA to the Client (EXCI) program in the commarea.

Verify the SIT options are IRCSTRT=YES and ISC=YES.

Your CICS System Programmer can assist you with these.

HTH....
