Unicom (who bought out ‘Softlanding Systems’) recommend upgrading to TURNOVER V101 before implementing iASP technology.
The main thing to remember is that you need to set your job, or session, to use the iASP before going into TURNOVER. You can do this by controlling your job with the JOBD ASPGRP or by issing a command line change: CHGSBSD SBSD(TSERVER) ASPGRP(‘my_iASP’)
I had to change the TSERVER subsystem and related job descriptions to point at the iASP:
CHGSBSD SBSD(TSERVER) ASPGRP('my_iASP')
The following job descriptions were set to INLASPGRP(‘my_iASP’)
Description Library Text
HELPDESK SOFTTURN TurnOver C/S Job Description
TURCRARE SOFTTURN Turnover auto-received JOBD for production syste
TURNESCQ SOFTTURN JobD for TurnOver Escalation Queue
TURNOVER SOFTTURN Turnover Job Description
WDAUTO SOFTTURN Wisedesk Dynamic Updating Autostart Job
WDDYNUPD SOFTTURN WISEDESK Dynamic Update
CHGUSRPRF USRPRF(TURNOVER) JOBD(SOFTTURN/TURNOVER) – because it must use a job description specifying the new ASP
When the distribution is transmitted to IASPSYSTEM they are installed to distribution libraries which are automatically created in *SYSBASE
The form will show as status received (REVD)
To run the forms we simply need to set our job into the ASP that the target library will be installed to
SETASPGRP ASPGRP('my_iASP') > TURNOVER > 6. Work with forms > 7=Run form
In this case the promoted program (PROOF) was successfully installed to library TESTQAOBJ in ASP ‘my_iASP’
If you go into Turnover without setting your iASP group, when you try to install to a library that is in the iASP it will show error Error: Target library &LIBRARY not found.
If TURNOVER cannot see the library, but you know it exists, then you have not set your iASP group for your signon session.
