Reply with quote

hi All,

Please look into the below problem and shed some lights.

I have following step in my jcl.

//SORTIN DD DSN=GDG.TEST.INPUT(+1),
// DISP=SHR
//SORTOUT DD DSN=GDG.TEST.OUTPUT(+1),
// DISP=(NEW,CATLG,DELETE),
// UNIT=TAPE,VOL=(,,,99),
//DCB=MDLDSCB,RECFM=FB,LRECL=5000,BLKSIZE=0,BUFNO=28)

I am getting a JCL error in the above step.

Error and explanation is as follows.

**********************************************
IEF287I &1 NOT CATLGD 7

The data set to be cataloged was not opened and the
following information was not provided on the DD
statement or via the retrieved source (VOL=REF or
passed data set):

Density For dual density tape requests only

Recording mode For requests where compaction
information is required
***********************************************

A very peculair thing is, this happens only in sort steps.

You were expecting no output, just trying to catalog an empty generation?

Hi Will,

This is the first run of this job and GDG.TEST.INPUT(+1) is created in aprevious step. And no way it will be empty.

I have tried the same JCL in testing and it worked. But then I was using DASD instead of Tape.

Thanks,
Abin

Hello,

It will also help if you post the actual (production) jcl/control statement(s), not an edited piece of the jcl. I'm not positive, but i do believe the jcl posted will cause a jcl error. . .

On your production system has the GDG base been defined for:
Quote:
GDG.TEST.OUTPUT
?

I'd question why a "TEST" dataset is being created in your first production run icon_confused.gif

Hello,

Regardless of the node name (i.e. TEST) whatever you used has to have a GDG definition in production. Has one been defined??

Your problem is not with the dataset created in the previous step - it is with the new dataset in the problem step.

As Bill said
