SYSTSIN variables

Table 1 lists all the SYSTSIN variables and their description. Modify the settings as required for your site configuration. The default values are shown in parentheses.
Table 1. SYSTSIN variables
Variable Description
COMPLETIONCODE(LASTSTEP) Specifies the job completion code of a JES multi-step job. This variable can have one of the following values:
The completion code for a JES multi-step job is determined by the last run step in the job. This is the default value.
The completion code is determined by the highest completion code of any run step in the job.

Any nonzero condition code in the last step (if LASTSTEP was selected) or in any step (if MAXSTEP was selected) causes the job to be considered unsuccessfully completed, unless differently specified using the condcode option in the job definition in HCL Workload Automation.

If a step is flushed, it is not taken into consideration when determining the completion code of the job, unless the flushed step is the last one, in which case the job is always considered as completed unsuccessfully.

DEBUG(NO) If set to YES, it causes the gateway to output diagnostic messages. Use only in coordination with HCL Software Support.
INTERLINKSUBSYSTEM(ACSS) The name of the subsystem used by Interlink TCP/IP stack. This variable is ignored if Interlink is not used as TCP/IP stack.
JESCMDCHR($) The job command recognition character. The default is set to dollar sign ($) for JES2 systems and to asterisk (*) for JES3 systems. Change this variable only if a different command recognition character is being used.
JESINTERFACE(CONSOLE) CONSOLE is the only supported value for JES and it is the default value. Set to NO if you do not use this interface.
MAXWAIT(500) The maximum amount of time, in hundredths of a second, to wait for a response to commands. This variable is ignored if you set JESINTERFACE to NO.
MCSSTORAGE(3) The amount of storage, in megabytes, used by each extended console used by the gateway. This variable is ignored if you set JESINTERFACE to NO.
OPCINTERFACE(PIF) PIF is the only supported interface for IBM Workload Scheduler for z/OS and is the default value for this variable. Set to NO if you do not use this interface.
OPCMSGCLASS(*) The message class for the dynamically allocated message logs used by IBM Workload Scheduler for z/OS. The asterisk causes the class to be set to the same value as EEWSERVE. Ignored if IBM Workload Scheduler for z/OS is not used.
OPCSUBSYSTEM(OPCS) The subsystem name used for communications with the IBM Workload Scheduler for z/OS control region.
PEERADDRESS(0:0:0:0:0:0:0:0) The default, 0:0:0:0:0:0:0:0, permits access by any host. For better security, enter the IP address of the Workload Scheduler host of the z/OS extended agent.
  1. Depending on the Internet Protocol you are using, specify an IPv4 or IPv6 address by including also the "." (for IPv4) or ":" (for IPv6) between the 0s.
  2. To connect to an extended agent that supports only Internet Protocol version 4, you must use IPv4.
PORT(5000) The TCP/IP port number used by HCL Workload Automation and the gateway for communications. This must be the same as the value entered in the TCP/IP address field of the z/OS extended agent workstation definition.
PUTLINE(YES) When set to YES, it directs trace information to DDNAME SYSTSPRT.
QLIMIT(2000) The maximum number of messages to be queued to an extended console.
SUBSYS(UNIS) The prefix used by the extended agent for z/OS as the first four characters of extended console names. It is also used as the first four characters of internal reader DDNAMES. Change only in coordination with HCL Software Support.
SVCDUMP(NO) When set to YES, abends cause a SVC dump. Use only in coordination with HCL Software Support.
TCPNAME(TCPIP) The name of the TCP/IP address space when the IBM version of TCP/IP stack is used.
TERMINATOR(X’25’) The transaction termination character. Do not change the default unless asked to do so by HCL Software Support.
WTP(NO) When set to YES, it directs trace information to SYSLOG as write-to-programmer information. This can be used if SYSTSPRT does not meet your needs.
ZOSV1R2(NO) Set to YES if you are using the JES3 interface with z/OS V1R2 or later. This parameter is ignored if you are not using the JES3 interface, because:
  • If you are using the JES2 interface, the level of the operating system does not make any difference to the product
