Using the OMVS Shell

INPUT

Appears as a status indicator.

When invoking long-running commands in the OMVS shell, and when the status indicator changes to INPUT, press PF10 to keep the command running.

CEE3536S Not enough storage was available for the WSA

To enable the user to open the shell or other daemon, you need to increase the maximum region size (in bytes) for the address space of the WSA process. You can set a system-wide limit in BPXPRMxx and then set higher limits for individual processes.

For OMVS, increase the size of the address space to 75MB in the RACF user profile. Use the RACF ADDUSER or ALTUSER command to specify the ASSIZEMAX limit on a per-process basis as follows:

ALTUSER userid OMVS(ASSIZEMAX(75000000)
