SETIPLDAT SET IPL DATE/TIME TAASYSL
The Set IPL Date/Time command simplifies the setting of the
QIPLDATTIM system value.
Typical commands would be entered as:
The default is for the next day at the default time. The default
time is shipped as 060000 and can be changed on the command.
SETIPLDAT DATE(*DAY2) TIME(050000)
The IPL is set for two days from today at 5:00:00 AM.
A completion message occurs which describes the actual setting. A
sample completion message is:
Auto IPL is set for Tuesday May 10, 2009 at 5:00 AM.
QIPLDATTIM system value is '05/10/09 060000'
The DATE parameter defaults to *DAY1 which allows a simple setting to
the next day. Other special values exist or you may enter a specific
The TIME parameter defaults to *DTAARA which refers to the SETIPLDAT
data area. Follow the implementation instructions for how to create
the data area.
If you prompt for SETIPLDAT, a prompt override program extracts the
value from the data area and places it in the TIME prompt. You can
change the setting of the data area with the parameter PERMCHG on
SETIPLDAT or by the EDTDTAARA command.
Command parameters *CMD
DATE The date of the IPL. The default is *DAY1 meaning
tomorrow. The special values *TODAY, *NONE, *DAY2 -
*DAY7 may be entered. The value *NONE means that an
automatic IPL does not occur.
TIME The time of day in military time. The default is
*DTAARA which uses the value stored in the SETIPLDAT
data area. If you prompt for SETIPLDAT, a prompt
override program extracts the value and places it in
the TIME prompt.
PERMCHG A *YES/*NO value that defaults to *NO. *NO causes
no change to the SETIPLDAT data area. If *YES is
entered, the SETIPLDAT data area is set to the TIME
You must be authorized to change the corresponding system values.
The following TAA Tools must be on your system:
CVTDAYN Convert day N (*DAY1, *DAY2 ...)
EDTVAR Edit variable
RTVDAT Retrieve date
SNDCOMPMSG Send completion message
SNDESCMSG Send escape message
The tool is ready to use, but you must create the data area
The data area must be in a library that will be found on the library
list of the user using the SETIPLDAT command. The library should
also be backed up as it contains your data. QGPL would be a good
You should decide on a default value for the time of day. IN the
following code 6:00 AM is used.
CRTDTAARA DTAARA(xxx/SETIPLDAT) TYPE(*DEC)
LEN(6 0) VALUE(060000)
TEXT('Used by the TAA Tool SETIPLDAT')
If a user should be able to change the default value, you should
grant *CHANGE authority to the user.
