Configure CAIENF/CICS to Install Intercepts Automatically
To configure CAIENF/CICS to install intercepts automatically, update the CAIENF control option member with the following CAIENF/CICS control option:
MODE(CICS,ON)
The intercepts install automatically in the appropriate CICS regions when the following action occurs:
  • CAIENF is initialized after an IPL.
  • A CICS region becomes active after CAIENF has been initialized.
Configure CAIENF/CICS to Install Intercepts Automatically for Specific CICS Releases
Depending on your needs, you can configure your environment to install CAIENF/CICS intercepts in the CICS regions that are at specific releases.
To configure CAIENF/CICS to install intercepts automatically for specific CICS releases, update the CAIENF control option member with the following CAIENF/CICS control options:
MODE(CICS,ON) CICSREL(
nn
,...)
  • nn
    Specifies the CICS release.
CICSREL loads the intercept modules for the specified CICS releases into CSA. To minimize CSA utilization, specify only the releases that you actually use.
When CAIENF is initialized, the intercepts install automatically in the CICS regions that are at the specified releases.
Configure CAIENF/CICS to Install Intercepts Automatically in Specific CICS Regions
You can configure your environment to install CAIENF/CICS intercepts in specific CICS regions.
Follow these steps:
  1. Make the CAW0LOAD data set available to each CICS region where you want the CAIENF/CICS intercepts installed by one of the following methods:
    1. Add a CENFLIB DD Statement, which points to the CAW0LOAD Data set, to the CICS startup JCL member.
      If you use CENFLIB, the CAW0LOAD data set which contains module CAILPAM must be in the link list or CICS Steplib.
    2. Add the CAW0LOAD data set to the CICS STEPLIB.
  2. Update the CAIENF control option member with the following CAIENF/CICS control option:
    MODE(CICS,ON)
    Do not use CICSREL(
    nn
    ). Using it would install the intercept for a given CICS release for
    all
    CICS regions.
When CAIENF is initialized, the intercepts install automatically in the configured CICS regions.
