Access data of SP's WLM DSSPRINT DD in execution time when called from external program (ex. Cobol)


We opened CASE TS003473597 to treat this issue but as we did not have solution from you we decide to ask it by "new idea". So we have some maintenance COBOL programs that make the call to the SP DSNUTILU to run some db2 utilities, so then the problem that occurs when we do the backup via flashcopy, the messages from ADRDSSU go to the dd DSSPRINT, but we could not access this dataset during execution time to handle error messages.

Why is it useful?
Who would benefit from this IDEA? BANCO DO BRASIL
How should it work?

In execution time the SP DSNUTILU needs to keep available the DSSPRINT DD content available to the calling program.
