  1. Add the value of the PGM parameter on the MVS EXEC Job Control Language (JCL) statement that is used to start TDP to the MVS Program Properties Table (PPT).

    This value is the name of the initial TDP load module, 'TRDTMTDP'.

    For compatibility with previous versions of TDP, 'TRDTMTDP' has an alias of 'TDP', which is now deprecated. If the JCL still specifies it, 'TDP' must be present in the PPT. Entries for both names may be present if both names are used in the JCL.

  2. A SCHEDxx entry for TDP is provided in the SCHEDTD member of dbcpfx.SAMPLIB, which contains only the following:
    PPT PGMNAME(TRDTMTDP)
        KEY(7)
        NOSWAP

    NOSWAP should always be specified. When it is specified, TDP does not alter its ability to be swapped, so there is no need to specify NOPREF.

    The SCHEDxx member is described in the IBM publication z/OS MVS Initialization and Tuning Reference available at http://www-01.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/. The SCHEDxx member is only used by MVS, never directly by TDP.
