Starting the SVOS started task

Use the following procedure to start the SVOS started task, which controls all MainView SRM components.

Before you begin

  • Make sure you use the new SVOS started task JCL that was generated during customization.

To start the SVOS started task

Issue the following command to start SVOS from a system console:


If SVOS fails to start, check the following items:

  • Are all data set names correctly spelled in the JCL?
