Submitting JCL Jobs over Secure Shell
Secure Shell can also be used to run JCL jobs remotely. For that an REXX script,
submit.rexx (shown below), is needed on the Unix System Services. The script is used to submit the data received from the Secure Shell connection to MVS.
/* rexx */
/* SUBMIT */
/* Contributed by a valued customer who prefers to remain anonymous.*/
/* This script takes jcl and other batch job in stream input */
/* as standard input, including via pipe or here script */
/* and submits job to mvs */
address mvs "execio * DISKR STDIN (stem JOB. "
/* submit MVS job */
Example 1: JCL written on Unix host is submitted over Secure Shell.
submit.rexx script, for example, to
/usr/local/bin. The script can be found from the
$ cp /usr/lpp/ssh2/doc/zOS/samples/submit.rexx /usr/local/bin/
Launch the Secure Shell connection from the Unix client using the JCL file as standard input.
$ sshg3 username@mf_server /usr/local/bin/submit.rexx < /tmp/my_jcl
