RE: Start up exit points



fixed

Tommy: That's a unique idea and I like it, but I wonder if another prestart
job entry in a custom controlling subsystem that does whatever preprocessing
you want done before the start up program, then just retrieve the startup
program from the system value and call it.

In any case I'm not sure what value any of this brings since the startup
program is intended to be the first thing that runs and should handle
any/all situations on that partition that need to be dealt with. I kina
agree with another point, why not just change the start up? (I know it's
hard to test -- that is certain)

I'm not aware of any exit points for startup (totally untested since I don't
have the luxury of performing an IPL nor endsbs *all with a following strsbs
QCTL) but you could potentially write a CL program that calls the 'QSYS/CALL
QSYS/QWDAJPGM' that is on the routing data for the QSTRUPJD and then
executes the remaining programs/commands you need and change the jobd to
have routing data to call your custom startup routine.

I am a wee bit reluctant to modify the start up programs. IBM does
occasionally change those. Sometimes quite drastically. I don't want to
get into a debate on the pros/cons of doing so. Nor be told to just "man
up" and do it. Nor do I want to get into a discussion over my definition of
"drastic".

What I really want to know is, are there any exit points for system start
up? Like before leaving restricted state, and after leaving restricted
state?
