1. Where does program name DB2ALL program resides? I beleive it resides in PROD.COBOLDB2.LOAD in STEPLIB.
2. What is the use of LIB(IBMMFS.MACC.LOAD) in the //SYSTSIN DD * card and how it's differnt from the STEPLIB?
I just browsed the link provided and got the below information.
Specifies the name of the data set containing the program to be run.
If library-name is not specified, normal MVS library searching is used. The data sets specified in the STEPLIB DD statements are first searched for the entry point name of the program. If STEPLIB is not present, then the data sets specified in the JOBLIB DD statements are searched. If the entry point name is not found there, then the link list is searched.
I'm having these two Loadlibs to run the program DB2ALL.
STEPLIB DD DSN=PROD.COBOLDB2.LOAD,DISP=SHR
So is it that LIB(IBMMFS.MACC.LOAD) will be searched for the Load of the program and if it's not available it'll pick it from the STEPLIB?

Natarajan- IKJEFT01 is a terminal monitor program or you can call it "TSO in batch". In the context of this thread, its function is to create an environment to execute program DB2ALL which is present (must be present) in Load library present in STEPLIB.
The STEPLIB statement specifies the library in which the DSN Command Processor load modules and the default application programming defaults module, DSNHDECP, reside. And the LIB keyword specifies the library that the application should access. _________________ Regards,
