Kelly,

QYASPOL needs to use the QGYGETLE API to work with the generated list? I have not done it in CL but do it in C to check for disk errors etc.

Hope that helps.

Chris...

Subject: [C400-L] QYASPOL (waiting for iASP availability on IPL)

I don't do CL much, but occasionally I can fake my way through it. We have in our startup program a brain-dead DLYJOB(900) to allow time for an iASP to come up, then we start our business processes once we think it's ready.
900 seconds is 15 minutes, a really long time. We recently turned on another CPU and upgraded our storage to the latest NVM or whatever IBM is calling it - basically we have no more spinning disks. I thought I'd get clever and write 'something' that sits in a loop waiting for the targeted iASP to become ready, then I could unload the requisite RUNJVA commands that start business stuff up. Then I wouldn't have to be up at 2AM on Sunday morning to do this manually. Our iASP is called 'DATADEV'. I've had a dilly of a time finding a good CL representation of the error code parameter, but there are other parameters to fix right now too. Presently the first SNDPGMMSG prints 'YASP0100', which it should. The second one prints nothing at the moment, the third, random garbage, probaby because the CHGVAR is just some

This is something I have in-progress. If anyone has something better than this, hit me up. I'd appreciate it.
