Mainframe VSAM

I have created mainframe FTP connection and added the job card. When I test the process, I couldn't locate the mainframe job and after debug found that the mainframe job is submitted without jobcard to jobpool and MF is not accepting the job.

Please advise on why jobcard is not added to job when submitted to jes pool.

  • Check the MSGCLASS and Job CLASS value. Generally you should provide these values which you provide while sumitting any test job.

  • Hi kp,

    Is it possible that the mainframe has a job management system that overrides the job card?

    DMExpress will not create the JCL job without the jobcard.

    Would you please post the DMExpress logs and the JCL generated.
