Attributes for auxiliary-sheet objects

An auxiliary-sheet object represents:

  • An auxiliary sheet that prints with a job sent to a PSF actual destination
  • An exit program that generates information about the job for printing on an auxiliary sheet or writing to an accounting log or an audit log

An auxiliary sheet is a sheet of paper that prints at the beginning or end of output, or separating different parts of the output. The auxiliary sheet can have information printed on it identifying the output or can be blank.

The PSF DSS uses the names of auxiliary-sheet objects as values for actual destination attributes, such as accounting-exit, audit-exit, start-sheets-supported, and printer-start-sheet. AIX actual destinations print start and end sheets, but they do not use auxiliary-sheet objects.
