Accessing advanced SYSPROG services

MainView AutoOPERATOR is distributed with a set of basic SYSPROG commands (formerly called RESOLVE services). If you also own MainView for z/OS, you have the option to allow access to the advanced SYSPROG services from MainView AutoOPERATOR and to execute the advanced early warning system (AEWS) in the MainView AutoOPERATOR address space.

The full set of advanced SYSPROG services are available automatically to MainView AutoOPERATOR if you have MainView for z/OS installed in the same SMP/E zones as MainView AutoOPERATOR or if you have the MainView for z/OS data sets (both BBLINK and BBLOAD) defined in the linklist concatenation.

If neither of these conditions is met, you must make the following JCL modifications:

  • Add the MainView for z/OS BBLINK data set as the first data set on the STEPLIB DD statement in the SS JCL.

  • Add the MainView for z/OS BBLOAD data set as the first data set on the BBILOAD DD statement in the SS JCL.

  • If you have combined the MainView for z/OS BBLINK and BBLOAD data sets, make a reference to the combined data set on both STEPLIB and BBILOAD.

MainView AutoOPERATOR requires all data sets in the BBILOAD concatenation to be APF authorized. The MainView for z/OS BBLOAD data set might not be authorized since MainView for z/OS does not require this authorization. If the data set is not authorized, you must authorize the MainView for z/OS BBLOAD data set before adding it to the BBILOAD concatenation.

Not all the advanced RESOLVE commands function under MainView AutoOPERATOR. For example, the CONSOLE service does not function because it uses full screen support and the MainView AutoOPERATOR interface is based on line-mode.

The user security exit (ASTXA1UE) is invoked for each service invocation. Refer to the MainView AutoOPERATOR Options User Guide for more information about the user security exit.

Executing AEWS in the MainView AutoOPERATOR address space

To run the advanced early warning system (AEWS) in the MainView AutoOPERATOR address space, add the LIB DD statement (as described in the MainView SYSPROG Services User Guide and Reference ) to the MainView AutoOPERATOR subsystem JCL.
