Hi,

I am receiving:
ICE083A D RESOURCES WERE UNAVAILABLE FOR DYNAMIC ALLOCATION OF WORK DATA SETS (970C)

I am receiving this error while sort a huge file using ICETOOL.

As far as I understand, this is due to some prob with sort work files.

So I tried using the below statements:

//DFSPARM DD *
OPTION DYNALLOC=(,16)

This avoided the prob but I am not sure, if I will receive the error in future.

I do not know whether there is some problem in dfsort environmental settings, is it preferable to use DYNALLOC. What could be its side effects.

Does any body has any sort of info on the above topic.

Thanks,
-Kapil.

Yes, it is preferable to use DYNALLOC and there are no side effects.

Since you were sorting a "huge file", your default for DYNALLOC probably didn't provide the space needed in this case (could have been too few data sets or fragmented space). Specifying more data sets to handle the larger file fixed the problem. Sites often set a reasonably low number of dynamic work data sets as the default and override that with more work data sets just for the jobs that need them.

Do we need to remove SORTWKnn DD statements when using DYNALLOC. Are these sort work files of any use or they just eat up on space ?

Thanks.

You have to remove SORTWKdd DD statements in order to use DYNALLOC. If you have SORTWKdd DD statements, they are used and DYNALLOC is NOT used. If you want to use DYNALLOC, you must either remove the SORTWKdd DD statements, or have your site change the DFSORT installation default from DYNAUTO=YES to DYNAUTO=IGNWKDD.
