I have been getting U0008 abend in ADRDSSU step which is trying to take backup into tape for some set of qualifiers.

when i look at the sysprint i can figure out that this due to an error message like the below one.

DATASET SRINI.TEST.DATA is not on volume BANAFB .....the message is like this .

Can this kind of problems can be solved with any piece of syntax.

Hello,

It sounds like you have a mis-match between the catalog and the volume where the dataset is supposed to exist. I'd suggest you get them back in sync.

If this is not the problem, please post the jcl/control you submitted and the diagnostic info created by the utility.

NO...
it would have been nice on your side ( to help people read the manual on Your behalf )
to post also the message identifier which I suppose is ADR321E

furthermore even nicer to post using the right terminology, to avoid making people research the wrong path
<from the messages and codes manual>
You should not be getting an abend but simply a return code of 8

anyway there are 2 possibilities
1 -
an orphaned catalog entry , something that Your storage support should investigate
2 -
some job sneaking in between the time the dataset list has been built and the time the dataset is processed
deleting an reallocating the dataset
Moral of the story: Don't delete datasets until after DFDSS has copied them.

for case 2 it would be interesting to know for how long the job has been running before getting the error message

I might be wrong with my analisys,
but that's the best anybody can do with such approximate information

Hi enrico,



you are correct im getting this message identifier ADR321E.

yea it was returncode 8 which turned into user abend i guess!!.

the SYSIN which i had given is

//SYSIN DD *
DUMP OUTDD(TAPE1,TAPE2) -
DS(INCL(SRINI.**) -
EXCL(SRINI.ONSITE.**)) -
SPHERE ALLDATA(*)
/*


and can i use any "verify" or some kind of statement to avoid this error.

look again at the job sysout, a return code should not turn into an abend..

no idcams command will resurrect a "not found" dataset...

investigate why the dataset has disappeared icon_smile.gif
