How do I set up an automatic reply for a program that is waiting on a response from the user who started the job? We would like to automatate a job that requires the user to answer a message of "nomax" during the program.
I have set up a new entry in the system reply list but my entry does not work.
using wrkrpyle I have entered
Seq # 1060
Mess ID CPA4072
Compar data *none
Msg deta start position *same
msg reply 'nomax'
dump sending job *no
coded character set *same
Any help is GREATLY appreciated. I am a new AS400 System Admin with less than 1 year experience.
The system reply list is used only when an inquiry message is sent by a job that has the inquiry message reply attribute specified as INQMSGRPY(*SYSRPYL).
You can change this in a active job with the command CHGJOB INQMSGRPY(*SYSRPYL)
You can change this in the job description for the job: CHGJOBD INQMSGRPY(*SYSRPYL)
Or you can change this when you submit the job: SBMJOB INQMSGRPY(*SYSRPYL)
