Hi,

Please give me an idea on how to do this, I have read somewhere that this is possible with HLASM. What I intend to do is to execute a program (assembly or JCL) using "START PROG_NAME" when a particular type of message (with specific message id) appears in the console.



Thanks,

Dan

Do you not have anything like NETVIEW or CA-OPER (as it was called once) to do this for you.

Any operations automation tool will be able to do this for you.

I'm not aware of anything like that installed in our z/OS. However, I found out that one of our programmers (already resigned) have done this in the past.


Thanks.

The CBT tape has an automation tool, TSSO, that's free. If nothing else, you could download it and study the code to see how the console message intercept is being done. Or, study the code the other programmer wrote to see how it was accomplished.

I am not saying I would recommend this, but you could achieve the desired results by using MPF to intercept the message and invoke an exit to start the required job

@expat
thank you so much!

@Robert
I'll try to test TSSO in our end. thanks

@nevilh
Can you show me a sample code to implement this? I'm really at lost on how to do this, thanks

I think there is sample code on the CBT tape (public domain software) to use the MPF exit. Look at Use [URL] BBCode for External Links for details.

Hello,

I would suggest you talk with your systems programmer, but it appears that is you icon_smile.gif

Most of the systems i've supported for years have some sort of "console automation" software active. If there is not a senior systems person to ask, you might talk with the Operations or Scheduling people to find out if there is something that already automatically replies to certain console messages.

I would encourage using something standard (especially if it is already installed) rather than doing a "roll your own" with limited experience.

I have already found what I'm looking for in CBT Tape>TSSO>AOF. I have also traced the old program and I think a few modifications might suffice with the automation I wish to accomplish. Now, I have to choose if I install TSSO or just modify the old HLASM. I think I'll go with the second option and just install TSSO if I have the extra time.

Thanks for the help guys. icon_smile.gif
