TSO Attention key
z/OS DFSMShsm Managing Your Own Data
If you are in a wait state because of DFSMShsm, your terminal is locked while DFSMShsm performs a requested task. You can press the TSO Attention key, which is usually the PA1 key, to receive the following message:
If you enter Y, you are released from the wait state. If you enter N, you remain in the wait state.
Using the TSO Attention key does not cancel the DFSMShsm command that you have already issued. If you press the TSO attention key to interrupt a RECALL, the RECALL is still performed. If you press the TSO Attention key to interrupt an HLIST command, you receive the information up to the point that you interrupted the command.
Note: If you are in full screen mode when the TSO Attention key is pressed (for example, ISPF browse), the screen that is displayed after the attention interrupt does not show the correct information. Press the Refresh key, which is usually the PA2 key, to get the correct information displayed on your screen.
