       {-SystemName}
	{(SystemName,SystemName, ...,SystemName)}
       {(-SystemName,SystemName, ...,SystemName)}
       {ANY}}
       {JGLOBAL}
       {JLOCAL}

SystemName Specifies up to 32 names can be provided.

The name is 1-8 character system names.

JGLOBAL Specifies that the job is to run on the JES3 global processor only.
JLOCAL Specifies that the job is to run on a JES3 local processor only.

Default and overrides:


If SYSTEM not specified, The default system set from SYSAFF associated input devices in JES2 and default system set from JOBCLASS.


Example 1:

//MTHEXMP1 JOB (META007),'PAWAN Y', SYSAFF=(MTHSYS1,MTHSYS2)

The systems MTHSYS1 and MTHSYS2 are eligible for processing the job.


Example 2:

//MTHEXMP2 JOB (META007),'PAWAN Y', SYSTEM=(MTHSYS1,*,MTHSYS2)

The systems MTHSYS1, MTHSYS2 and the system that submitted the job is eligible for processing the job.


Example 3:

//MTHEXMP3 JOB (META007),'PAWAN Y', SYSTEM=(-MTHSYS1,*,MTHSYS2)

The systems MTHSYS1 and MTHSYS2 and the system that submitted the job are not eligible for processing the job.


Example 4:

//MTHEXMP3 JOB (META007),'PAWAN Y', SYSAFF=ANY

Any system in the JESplex that satisfies the job's requirements are eligible to process the job.
