Heh. An undocumented Work Management [Work Control (WC)] "API"; or
so seems, from the search results of the KnowledgeCenter. What is
the name of the spool file created? And might a sample of the
output be included for reference in the midrange archives? I have
no authority to call the program.


For the Archives-

Wiki link showing the spool file:

Thanks. A QPSRVDMP spooled file gets produced as the result of what is effectively represented as the request DMPSYSOBJ 'QWCSRCDATAOUTPUT' (*byAddr) TYPE(19) SUBTYPE(EF) wherein the eye-catcher data is a series of System Reference Codes (SRC) for the PwrDwn and the IPL [apparently; the technote implies so] along with Phase and SubFunction information about the IPL steps, each with a date\time marking the start or end of the step; the data is formatted to fit such that the data reads as effective records in fixed columns.

The sample output in the wiki fails to include any /records/ showing an actual IPL SRC, just some SRCs of the Dump phase for the Power Down processing :-( What is shown as\in the "bottom" of the spool file contains only sub-components of what should be a prior recorded SRC of the IPL.
