I have used search button to check the related links, and build the code, however i am facing the below issue.

Mainframes --> Linux server.

This is the NDM Process:

Code:
NARARTAS   PROCESS SNODE=NDMTESTSERV PNODE=MNFRM                       -
              &OUTDSN='/apps/mule/naritas/NARA/input/NARA'           -
               MAXDELAY                                                 
STEP1      COPY    FROM (PNODE                                         -
                   DSN=&DSNIN                                          -
                   DISP=SHR)                                           -
                   TO (SNODE                                           -
                      DSN=&OUTDSN || _D || &DATE || T || &TIME || .TXT -
                      DISP=NEW                                         -
                      SYSOPTS="DATATYPE(TEXT) STRIP.BLANKS(NO)")   


This is my DMBATCH control card:

Code:
 SIGNON CASE=YES                                           
 SUBMIT PROC=NARARTAS -                                     
        &DSNIN=VF1209.DBKPB.N.CLIENT.G9112V00(+1)  -       
        &DATE=%SUBDATE1                            -       
        &TIME=%SUBTIME       


This is output error message:

SHORT TEXT => SCBC085I Invalid keyword in TO parameter list of a COPY command.
UIERRM1 => STEP1 COPY TO(_D201206
LONG TEXT => An unsupported or misspelled keyword was found within the
'TO' parameter list of a COPY command.

EXAMPLE:
COPY FROM (DSN=MY.SRC) COMPRESS PRIME=X'40' -
TO (DSN=dsn DCB=(....) UNIT=unit VOL=SER=volser)



SYSTEM ACTION: Return to invoker with RC=8.


Where can i get more information on this error? It looks like NDM is not able to parse date and time stamp and append it to the file. This is the first NDM script i am building on mainframes.

Any help is appreciated.

Hello,

Suggest you try to find some other NDM process that successfully does this on your system. Then apply the same code to your process.

I don't "do" NDM, so i don't know specifics.

When i take the date and time parm out from the above equation, it works like a charm.

If i am modifying the script to

Code:
000001 NARARTAS PROCESS SNODE=NDMTESTSERV PNODE=MNFRM -
000002 &OUTDSN='/apps/mule/naritas/NARA/input/NARA.txt -
000003 MAXDELAY
000004 STEP1 COPY FROM (PNODE -
000005 DSN=&DSNIN -
000006 DISP=SHR) -
000007 TO (SNODE -
000008 DSN=&OUTDSN -
000009 DISP=NEW -
000010 SYSOPTS="DATATYPE(TEXT) STRIP.BLANKS(NO)")

But i am trying to add date and time stamp to my outbound file, to make it unique. Any suggestions?

And the job is using Connect: Direct to transmit files to linux server.

Hello,

You could include a "pre-NDM" step that would dynamically build the NDM control statements that would include the date/time you want. Then use these generated copntrol statements in the NDM execution.

Thanks DS.
Would you be able to pinpoint a sample script for me?

i mean, how about you searching for my solution,
instead of me exerting any effort to come up with a solution
to my problem.

No, because you need to find a script that works as desired on Your system. I don't have access to your system . . .

No DS, thats not my intention.
Just trying to understand what did you mean by pre-NDM step that would build card dynamically. I am already using ctlcard to override the values at run time.

Follow on:

You have co-workers, some kind of "leader/manager", as well as local network/NDM support people who should know. . .

There are exmples in the forum - not necessarily in this section (but I think there are). All you have to do is use the search function or Google.

One more time icon_smile.gif

You could get the data multiple ways. One might be thru rexx. another might be EZACFM1.

For example, this:
Code:
//SYMBOLS EXEC PGM=EZACFSM1                                     
//SYSIN   DD DATA                                               
                                                               
 SIGNON CASE=YES                                               
 SUBMIT PROC=NARARTAS -                                         
        &DSNIN=VF1209.DBKPB.N.CLIENT.G9112V00(+1)  -           
        &DATE=&LYR2&LMON&LDAY                       -           
        &TIME=&HR&MIN&SEC                                       
/*                                                             
//SYSOUT DD SYSOUT=*                                           


Generates:
Code:
SIGNON CASE=YES                                       
SUBMIT PROC=NARARTAS -                                 
       &DSNIN=VF1209.DBKPB.N.CLIENT.G9112V00(+1)  -   
       &DATE=120627                       -           
       &TIME=162033

connect direct itself has various variables to generate a date and timestamp at runtime. there is no need to use jcl utilities or similar.

Hello,

If NDM can do this itself - great.

Please post a tested example that provides what was requested.

Hi,

Yes, i have used connect direct variables above -- %SUBDATE1 and SUBTIME.

I was suspecting that it could be some incorrect formatting in script.

The error message is

Code:
SCIC000I Connect:Direct - RC=00000008 MSG=SCBC085I             @ 12:33
   SHORT TEXT => SCBC085I Invalid keyword in TO parameter list of a COPY command
      UIERRM1 => STEP2 COPY  TO(20120627                                       
    LONG TEXT => An unsupported or misspelled keyword was found within the     
                 'TO' parameter list of a COPY command.                         
                                                                               
                 EXAMPLE:                                                       
                        COPY FROM (DSN=MY.SRC) COMPRESS PRIME=X'40' -           
                        TO (DSN=dsn DCB=(....) UNIT=unit VOL=SER=volser)       
                                                                               
                                                                               
                                                                               
                 SYSTEM ACTION: Return to invoker with RC=8.                   
                                                                               
                 RESPONSE: Correct the command and retry.                       


I am yet to see if IEACFSM1 can provide the same results.

Finally i was able to see the problem after many trail and error methods:


Code:
               &DSNOUT=\/apps/mule/securitas/NARA/input/NARA\           -
               &TIME=%SUBTIME                                           -
               &DATE=%SUBDATE1                                           
          SYMBOL &FNAME=&DSNOUT || &DATE || &TIME || .TXT               


It looks like when i have to append date and time, i have to enclose in backward slash '\' instead of quotes.

Thanks a lot for the help provided.

is there a way to add yesterdays date to the file name by any methods? Will below work?

Code:

               &DSNOUT=\/apps/mule/securitas/NARA/input/NARA\           -
               &TIME=%SUBTIME                                           -
               &DATE=%SUBDATE1 -(-1)                                         
          SYMBOL &FNAME=&DSNOUT || &DATE || &TIME || .TXT
