Creating and modifying allocation rules

The PFPEPR00 utility program offers four subcommands that can be specified on the PROCESS_EPR command to manage allocation rules: LIST, ADD, MODIFY and DELETE.

When combined with a rule-type object identifier, these subcommands let you manage allocation rules. An allocation rule can be defined at the global, group, DBD, or area level. Following table lists allocation management commands and subcommands that are available.
