Help on Issuing MVS Commands from REXX. URGENT!!!
I want to check whether a job/started task is running in MVS in Batch and
the only way I could find was to build a
REXX procedure to issue the MVS command "D A,L" and capture the output and
process it.

However, I made several effort to issue the command but I was not able to
issue it.

How do I issue such MVS command from REXX? or is there any other easier
way?

Any help is appreciated.

Regards,
Pantazis

Hi Pantazis,

Just a sample :

/* REXX */
/* run MVS console */
/* trace r */
address TSO 'CONSPROF SOLDISPLAY(NO)'
address TSO 'CONSOLE ACTIVATE'
address CONSOLE 'd a,l'
/* retrieve output command */
do forever
fc = GETMSG('line.','SOL',,,10)
if fc = 0 then leave
end
do i = 1 to line.0
say '*** ' line.i
end
address TSO 'CONSOLE DEACTIVATE'
exit

I see that you trap the output in a different way.

Doesn't OUTTRAP work in this scenario?

Thanks

IMHO, you cannot.

You can use the OUTTRAP function only in REXX execs that run in the TSO/E
address space and use GETMSG to retrieve messages that are routed to the
user's console but that are *not* being displayed at the user's terminal.
HTH.

(in response to Pierre R Bodart)
Thanks for the prompt reply!

I am new to REXX so I lack many issues. I will give it a try tomorrow or on
Monday, since from
the time I had sent the original message my plans have changed twice (from
the management)

Thanks again

Don't you also need some kind of RACF permission to issue MVS commands?

Re: Help on Issuing MVS Commands from REXX. URGENT!!!

As an alternative to issuing MVS commands from a user batch job with has
many security / audit exposures and requires TSO OPER authority I would
recommend using the TSO "Status" command from REXX in a batch TSO step.
"ST jobname" works fine for any job name and is not a secured command.
