AUTO$ASB method

With the AUTO$ASB method, AR/CTL automatically is aware of every file that the program uses; if the program is changed later to use a new file, you don’t have the additional work to set up an FCB and add it to the ASB. Without AUTO$ASB, the risk is that the FCB will not be created and the ASB will not be updated, resulting in a program that cannot be restarted.

Considerations for AUTO$ASB use

If you want to use the AUTO$ASB method, keep the following considerations in mind:

If an application program is using AUTO$ASB and an ARC DD statement is present (specifically allocated in the JCL or dynamically allocated), AR/CTL uses any data set option members (FCBs) that are in this ARC data set. This convention provides a good way to override default data set options or bypass interception for a particular data set without setting up specific FCBs for all data sets.

AR/CTL changes the value of the DB2 Attach Type option from CAF to DSN if the program uses the AUTO$ASB default ASB and AR/CTL for VSAM is present.

The application program cannot issue ARCASAM calls if it uses the AUTO$ASB method. You must remove the invalid call from the application program or generate a specific ASB and specific FCBs.

When an application program uses AUTO$ASB, AR/CTL does not perform automatic repositioning at restart for data sets that are handled by a subsystem (such as JES). If you want repositioning for one of these types of data sets, you must provide a specific ASB with a corresponding FCB. Also, AR/CTL does not perform automatic repositioning at restart for data sets that use these reserved data set names:

SYSDBOUT and SYSDBIN for COBOL programs

PLIDUMP for PL/I programs

SYSIN, SYSOUT, SYSPRINT, CEEDUMP, CEERPTS for all program types

When you set the Initialize File Sharing option to Y and you use the AUTO$ASB method, AR/CTL prepares the environment for remote VSAM access services (file sharing). All components necessary for file sharing must be available, including the AR/CTL tables that define the CICS connections.

The AUTO$ASB method and specific FCBs

If you use the AUTO$ASB method, AR/CTL first searches for a specific FCB for each file. If a specific FCB exists, AR/CTL uses the options in the specific FCB for that file only. If a specific FCB does not exist for the file, AR/CTL automatically generates one for the file.

In this way, you can use different data set options for a file than you use for other files, without having to code specific FCBs for each file. For example, if you want AR/CTL to provide repositioning for all files except one, you can code a specific FCB that sets the Bypass Intercept option to Y for that file.

BMC Software strongly recommends that if you need to use a specific data set option for a particular file, such as output staging, you still use the AUTO$ASB to let AR/CTL automatically handle all of the other files.

Use with non IMS programs

To use the AUTO$ASB method with a non IMS program, set the ASB name to AUTO$ASB in the program registration record or on the job step EXEC statement. AUTO$ASB is the default.

Use with IMS programs

To use the AUTO$ASB method with an IMS program, set the Use AUTO$ASB with IMS option to Y in the processing options record.

Use with IMS compatible mode programs

The AUTO$ASB method is not supported for IMS compatible mode environments (where the application program uses IMS format calls and structures but IMS is not present).
