Dataset Access Using DD Cards

When running the client programs scp2 and sftp2 in JCL, the _BPX_SHAREAS environment variable must be set to NO. Local datasets can be allocated by using DD cards. For the DD cards to work, BPXBATSL must be used instead of BPXBATCH. BPXBATSL uses local spawn and forces scp2 and sftp2 to run in the original address space where the DD information is available.

The following sftp2 commands cannot be used with DD names:

  • rm (remove file)
  • rename
  • mkdir
  • rmdir

Empty datasets cannot be read when referred to by DD names.

For correct syntax, see the SCP2PUT and SCP2GET2 examples in Section Unattended File Transfers.
