A typical example of using an ASI master procedure is an environment with multiple z/VSE systems sharing the DOSRES (system residence) disk device or an environment where two or more z/VSE systems run as guest systems under VM. In the $ASIPROC you can specify the IPL and JCL procedure that should be used dependent on the CPU id.... [More]
