Reply with quote

Hi All,

Currently I am allocating my rexx library to SYSPROC using the below given command.
Code:
"ALLOC F(SYSEXEC) DA('"DSNAME"' 'SYS2.ISX.XCXCXC') SHR REU"


But the Problem is i have to execute the above step for each and every logon. The dataset will be de-allocated during session Termination.

Is there any way to concatenate the dataset permanently to SYSEXEC. I have scoured through many Forums but couldn't find a solution.

One way would be to add the data set to the system LOGON procedure. This would get the allocation done during the LOGON process. However, the data set is then allocated for every TSO user on your system. Your site support group may not approve such a change.

How can I Change the System LOGON procedure? Is it resides in any particular library.

That's usually the function of the systems programmers in your site support group.

If you are an application programmer, you will not have the security access to make the change. You need to contact your site support group and work with them.

You can also use the command line on the logon screen.

See this: http://ibmmainframes.com/viewtopic.php?p=327273&highlight=#327273

Unless your Rexx programs are certified by some testers saying they work with NO issues, No one would approve your request to add them in the system sysexec lib.

At my shop, each racf id has it's own rexx dataset ( std name first qualifier will be your racf id) and then you request you site support team ( as told by others) to concatenate this dataset or you could use the rexx command shown by RahulG31 to add your members and this will be always concatenated whenever you relogin.

Mr. Heinze and Mr. Sample are correct. Changing a LOGON procedure is reserved to the central site system programmers. Especially for you, where you are allocating a personal library, they will not be cooperative.

There are other possibilities.
  • Many sites always execute a "standard" Rexx EXEC when you logon. Some of these Rexx EXECs have been trained to check for a "standard" library such as userid.CLIST and automatically add it to the standard SYSPROC. Find out if your installation's startup EXEC does this.
  • The regular TSO/E LOGON screen has Command ===>. Enter the TSO command you want to run here. The contents of this data area are retained, so it will automatically run every time you logon. This command runs after the "standard" startup EXEC.

Hello Rahul,

Thanks for your reply.
But the given solution won't work for us since we are using TPX menu to logon to different appilcations.

As everyone says let me contact our System Admins..
