Description:

Is IMBED needed in the VISION:Inform 4.0 installation job SMPJOB01?

Solution:

The SMPJOB01 member of the SMPCNTL installation PDS delivered with VISION:Inform 4.0 allocates the SMP/E CSI.

If running CA's Workload Automation to perform a JCL Check, a severity 8 error may be generated regarding the IMBED parameter at the index level of the VSAM file allocation:

             CAY6037E UNKNOWN KEYWORD "IMBED" SPECIFIED IN OPERAND OF "INDEX"

                    IMBED)

According to the IBM documentation, "IMBED|NOIMBED is no longer supported; if it is specified, it will be ignored and no message will be issued".

So, while errors only occur if running a JCL check, IMBED is obsolete and can safely be deleted.
