  • 6. 

    A user has the parameter OUTQ set to OUTQUEUE1 in his profile. They submit a job which creates one spooled file. The job has OUTQ(OUTQUEUE2) in its job description, and a print file with OUTQ(OUTQUEUE3). The system default is OUTQUEUE0. In which output queue will the spool file be created?

    • A.

      OUTQUEUE3.

    • B.

      OUTQUEUE2.

    • C.

      OUTQUEUE1.

    • D.

      OUTQUEUE0.

    Correct Answer
    A. OUTQUEUE3.
    Explanation
    The spool file will be created in OUTQUEUE3 because the print file used in the job has the OUTQ parameter set to OUTQUEUE3. The job description's OUTQ parameter (OUTQUEUE2) and the user's profile parameter (OUTQUEUE1) are not relevant in this case. The system default OUTQUEUE0 is also not applicable as the print file specifies a different output queue. Therefore, the spool file will be created in the output queue specified in the print file, which is OUTQUEUE3.

      RSTLIBSAVLIB(LIBA LIBB) DEV(TAP01) DFRID(ABC). RMVDFRID DFRID(ABC).

    • D.

      RSTLIBSAVLIB(LIBA LIBB) DEV(TAP01) DFRID(ABC). RSTDFROBJ DFRID(ABC).

    Correct Answer
    D. RSTLIBSAVLIB(LIBA LIBB) DEV(TAP01) DFRID(ABC). RSTDFROBJ DFRID(ABC).
    Explanation
    The correct answer is RSTLIBSAVLIB(LIBA LIBB) DEV(TAP01) DFRID(ABC). RSTDFROBJ DFRID(ABC). This answer is correct because the RSTLIBSAVLIB command is used to restore libraries LIBA and LIBB from the tape device TAP01. The DFRID(ABC) parameter is used to specify a specific save file identifier, which ensures that only the necessary objects are restored. After the libraries are restored, the RSTDFROBJ command is used to restore the dependent logical files in LIBA that are dependent on the physical files in LIBB. This completes the restore operation in one pass through the tape.

    • C.

      CHGOUTQ RMTJOB AUTOSTRWTR(1).

    • D.

      CHGOUTQ RMTJOB TRANSFORM(*AUTO).

    Correct Answer
    C. CHGOUTQ RMTJOB AUTOSTRWTR(1).
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "CHGOUTQ RMTJOB AUTOSTRWTR(1)". This command changes the output queue (OUTQ) and specifies that a remote writer (RMTJOB) will automatically start when a spooled file is added to the queue. By setting AUTOSTRWTR(1), the operator does not have to manually start the writer every day, as it will start automatically when needed.

    What is a logical file?

    • A.

      An alternate view of a physical data file.

    • B.

      A file containing data that is arranged in arrival sequence.

    • C.

      A file that exists only in memory and has not been written to disk.

    • D.

      A file that exists in QTEMP which will be deleted when the current job ends.

    Correct Answer
    A. An alternate view of a physical data file.
    Explanation
    A logical file refers to an alternate view of a physical data file. It provides a different way of organizing and accessing the data stored in the physical file. This allows for more efficient and convenient data retrieval based on specific criteria or sorting orders. Unlike a physical file, a logical file does not store the actual data but rather provides a logical representation of it. This helps in simplifying data management and improving system performance.

    An operator changed a writer using the CHGWTR command and specified OPTION(*NORDYF). When will the change take place?

    • A.

      When the writer is restarted.

    • B.

      When the writer ends normally.

    • C.

      When the current spooled file completes.

    • D.

      When there are no spooled files ready to print.

    Correct Answer
    D. When there are no spooled files ready to print.
    Explanation
    When the operator changes a writer using the CHGWTR command and specifies OPTION(*NORDYF), the change will take place when there are no spooled files ready to print. This means that the writer will continue to run until all the current spooled files have been printed, and then it will stop processing new spooled files until the operator restarts the writer.

    An output queue has been changed using the command CHGOUTQ OUTQ(LIBA/OUTQA) MAXPAGES((500 '09:00' '12:00')) in order to avoid printing files which exceed the page limit. What status will a spooled file with 600 pages have?

    • A.

      HLD (Held).

    • B.

      OPN (Open).

    • C.

      PND (Pending).

    • D.

      DFR (Deferred).

    Correct Answer
    D. DFR (Deferred).
    Explanation
    When the output queue is changed using the CHGOUTQ command with the MAXPAGES parameter, it sets a maximum page limit for the spooled files in that queue. In this case, the MAXPAGES parameter is set to 500 pages between 09:00 and 12:00. Therefore, a spooled file with 600 pages will exceed the page limit and will be deferred, meaning it will not be printed immediately but will be held back until the page limit is no longer exceeded. Therefore, the correct answer is DFR (Deferred).

    An operator has taken the system to restricted state using the ENDSYS command to perform endof- week tasks. On completion of the tasks, the operator needs to restart the system for normal operations. The controlling subsystem is QGPL/QCTL The startup program is QGPL/STARTUP The QGPL library is part of the system library list Which of the following will resume normal system operation in the least amount of time?

    • A.

      CALL QGPL/STARTUP.

    • B.

      STRSBS SBSD(QGPL/QCTL).

    • C.

      STRSYSCTL SBSD(*SYSVAL).

    • D.

      PWRDWNSYS RESTART(*YES).

    Correct Answer
    B. STRSBS SBSD(QGPL/QCTL).
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "STRSBS SBSD(QGPL/QCTL)". This command will start the subsystem QGPL/QCTL, which is the controlling subsystem for the system. Starting the subsystem will resume normal system operation in the least amount of time because it will bring all the necessary processes and resources back online. The other options, such as calling the startup program or restarting the system, may also resume normal operations but may take more time and may not be as efficient as starting the subsystem directly.

    Operations in a 24x7 shop has attempted to run the SAVSYSINF command rather than take the system down for a SAVSYS. The command fails with CPD37AD "Save file not found for PTF MF23400". Which of the following is the most likely cause?

    • A.

      Save files for PTFs applied prior to the last SAVSYS have been cleared from the system.

    • B.

      PTFs were applied since the last SAVSYS but the save files were not copied to QGPL Library.

    • C.

      PTFs were applied since the last SAVSYS but they were applied from media rather than save files.

    • D.

      PTF MF23400 is marked defective and must be removed however the required save file is not present.

    Correct Answer
    B. PTFs were applied since the last SAVSYS but the save files were not copied to QGPL Library.
    Explanation
    The most likely cause for the command failure is that PTFs were applied since the last SAVSYS, but the save files for these PTFs were not copied to the QGPL Library. This means that the required save file for PTF MF23400 is not present in the library, leading to the CPD37AD error.
