Packaging fault entries

To package fault entry data for sending to IBM® Support, enter P against the entry in the Fault Entry List display. This will generate JCL to package related Fault Entry data to a tersed data set suitable for transmission. The JCL is displayed in an edit session which can then be amended and submitted.

Tip: It is not necessarily sufficient to send just the fault entry. The IDIUTIL EXPORT step in the generated JCL appends the associated dump data set, if one exists, to ensure that Fault Analyzer Support receives all the appropriate data. While the Package option attempts to estimate space requirements, you might need to amend the space estimate to ensure successful execution.
