Your DD name points to the path not the AIX. And your DD name will be the base cluster DD name with a 1 appended.

If you need more help, you'll have to provide the VSAM error and possibly the COBOL statements as well as DD statements.

What VSAM error? Is there a file status code? Use to Code feature to show the SELECT for the file from the COBOL code and the DD statements in your JCL for the selected file; without more information there's simply no way to determine anything about your problem. If it's not a file status code, show the exact error message(s) in the job log as well.
