Word from IBM...

Batch prestart jobs use a system program interface (SPI) to request work.
The
SPI to request work for batch prestart jobs is only available to IBM
servers.

More information on program start requests used with communications prestart
jobs can be found in APPC programming
https://public.dhe.ibm.com/systems/power/docs/systemi/v6r1/en_US/sc415443.pdf?view=kc&origURL=ssw_ibm_i_61/rzahj/sc415443.pdf

Yeah, I saw some stuff in the ICF manuals myself...

However, the OP was asking about BATCH as opposed to COMMUNICATION
prestart jobs...

Not sure if ICF is involved there or not...

I know I've kind of look for the info myself a few times, would be great
to have the OS responsible for starting additional and/or restarting my own
NEP jobs....

I did a little googling and found this sentence in an older page -

For source iSeries servers, the program start request is started on
the source server using information contained in the IBM-supplied
intersystem communications function (ICF) file for DDM. The remote
location information in the DDM file being accessed is used to send
the program start request to the appropriate target server.

The link is http://www.setgetweb.com/p/i5/rbae5xs3xtgt.htm

I suspect that any examples for this would be in the communication
device programming manuals. Maybe the above will get the OP started.

Midrange list might be a better choice...

Or the RPG list...

Actually, the C list might be your best choice since the MI list was
folded
into it.

Hello,

Does anyone have a reference document or and example of a program
calling
a PRESTART Batch Job? I cannot find anything that described how to
perform
a Program Start Request (PSR) to PRESTART Batch Job.

Thanks in advance.
