To Start a JES Region using a Spool Housekeeping Archive

To start a region using the spool and catalog from an archive created by MVSSPLHK, the archive location must be configured in the region start-up file. To do this:
  1. Open the region startup file using the Enterprise Server for .NET Administration UI's Region Startup File Editor.
  2. Select the Region node in the Results pane. See number 1 in the diagram below. A properties window is now displayed to the right-hand side of the Results pane.
  3. Locate the General category in the properties window and enter the archive location as the value of the Use spool archive property. See number 2 in the diagram below. Alternatively, click the ... button to right of the property value field to display the Spool Archive Location dialog, from which you can select the required location.
  4. Click either File > Save, or the Save icon in the toolbar to save the file. See number 3 in the diagram below.
You must cold-start the region for the changes to take effect.
