Setting a STEP RC On Jobcard for a restart

Post by dacurtis1960 » Thu Mar 03, 2016 12:05 am

I have a job that needs to be restarted from STEP ABCSS001.DEFS0020, however the Steps before the Step that I want to restart from has RC sets. and these RC are conditional for the step to run. Can I set the RC for a step on the jobcard in a restart situation


This will only execute if STEPS ABCSS001.DEFS0005 and ABCSS001.DEFS0010 each have a RC of ZERO(0).

Is there a way to set the RC for STEP ABCSS001.DEFS0005 to 0 and STEP ABCSS001.DEFS0010 to 0 on the JOBCARD along with the RESTART Parameter?
