End-to-End Overview

Basic Step-by-Step Instructions

Create a Dataset On the Host

Go to ISPF 3.2 to allocate a new 80 byte fixed dataset called HLQ.TOOL.JCL

  1. Record Format = FB for Fixed Block

  2. Record Length = 80

  3. Directory Blocks = 0

  4. Block Size = 0 (system determined block size)

Upload to the Host From Your PC

  1. Download the tool from this web site

  2. Begin FTP Session - command is "ftp <hostname>"

  3. Change FTP mode to binary - command is "bin"

  4. Put the SCPTOOL.BIN file onto the host, overwriting the new MVS file called TOOL.JCL - command is "put SCPTOOL.BIN TOOL.JCL"

Back on the Host, Customize the Job

  1. customize the jobcard to fit your environment
    //SCPTOOL JOB (,),MSGLEVEL=1,MSGCLASS=O,NOTIFY=NAME
    

  2. verify parameters, see comments in job for more details
    //EXTR     EXEC  PGM=LOADER,PARM='/,,CUSTOMERNAME'
    

  3. change SMF DD to point to your SMF dataset
    //SMF      DD    DISP=SHR,DSN=HLQ.SMF.DATA
    

  4. change the output dataset name to fit your environment
    NOTE: since the LRECL for this dataset is unusual, you might be better off sending the output to a new dataset
    //OUTPUT   DD    DISP=(,CATLG),DSN=HLQ.TOOL.OUTPUT,UNIT=SYSDA,   //
    SPACE=(TRK,(15,15))
