RETRYL and RETRYT parameters

z/OS MVS JCL Reference

Parameter type: Keyword, optional

Purpose: Each of these keywords specifies a numeric value, as follows:
  • RETRYL=limit defines the maximum number of attempts to transmit a data set before the RETAIN keyword options take effect.
  • RETRYT='retry time' defines how much time to wait between each attempt to transmit the data set. It is formatted into hours, minutes, and seconds.

RETRYL and RETRYT apply only to data sets processed by a functional subsystem that can perform Internet Protocol (IP) transmission. JES does not use the RETRYL or RETRYT parameters, but passes them to the functional subsystem during data set selection. See the documentation for the particular subsystem for additional information.
