A simple CL program could be used to create the devices:

I have over 100 printers to define to a given LPAR and I would like to
do this using an in stream member with multiply CRTDEVPRT commands as
shown below.

Questions....

1. Can this be done and how would this be executed (PGM, Utility, etc)

2. What type of file would be used to create this?


I'm new to this platform and my background is on the Z-Series, so please
forgive me if my terminology to not correct.

I would like to keep this very simple, if possible.
