Hi All,

Issue:-

I have 100+ connect direct jobs which transfers file to a server. Each job transfers two files
1. file with data
2. Dummy file with no data, just to ensure that the transfer is ok and the receiving server starts the porcess only if the dummy file is also present.

Now, My jobs didn't transfer the dummy file as the dummy file was accidentally deleted in mainframe before the connect direct jobs ran but the actual file with data was transferred successfully. The receiver is still waiting for the dummy files to kick start the process, so i have to transfer the dummy files now.

Solution (Am thinking of):-

Instead of rerunning all the jobs. Just setup one datacard to transfer all the 100+ files to target.

Question I have:-

In My CD job has few DD names which am unaware of.
DMNETMAP
DMPUBLIB
DMMSGFIL
SYSIN - where am giving the datacard as input. But am not aware of the use of the three DM files. Not sure if my program is editing these files, am my above solution will somehow corrupt this file. Please let me know your feedback on this.

Requesting advise on any thing i should be concerned about, any points i should keep in mind, alternate solution if any, etc.

You don't have to worry about corrupting files. Just use the NDM proc that is standard at your shop.

I assume you are using COPY statement in SYSIN, it would do no harm
