Re: Delete all but latest spool file member



fixed

Jeff,

Reviving an old thread here.

Does this method work for job logs? I would like to keep the last couple of job logs for each production job around. Right now, we keep job logs for 2 weeks and then they are purged. This doesn't work very well for jobs that run less frequently than every week.

I tried doing a OVRPRTF EXPDATE(*DAYS) DAYS(10) on QPJOBLOG within the job, but that didn't work. I tried with the Override scope set to *JOB and *ACTGRPDFN. The expiration date on the job log was blank in both cases. Any ideas on how to get this to work for job logs?

I don't know exactly what you may be after, but you can do either OVRPRTF
EXPDATE(thedate) or OVRPRTF EXPDATE(*DAYS) DAYS(1). Then use a job
scheduler job to run once a day and run the DLTEXPSPLF command. It gets
rid of all expired spool files.

I use the DAYS() example a lot. Some reports 1 day, some 3 days, some 30
days, etc. There are different logs or registers that I create, never
intending to print, but may want to look at if an issue arises.
