I am new to mainframe and I am currently doing a CICS 3.1 installation on z/OS 1.4 .
I have done the intial configuration for the Installation and I am ready to submit the jobs needed for it.
The first JCL - OFFLINIT(This job initializes two volumes with serial name MVSDLB and MVSRES with Device numbers 0320 and 0321 respectively) it stops in a step before the volume initialization and it wait for a response from the opeator.
Before submitting this job I have made 0320 and 0321 offline(as it is said in the JCL)
when I submit this JCL it waits for a response from the user
JOB02498 *35 ICK004D READY DEVICE 0320 AND REPLY U, ELSE T
when I give /r 23,U as a reply it says
RESPONSE=P390 IEE600I REPLY TO 23 IS;U
but again it wait for the same reply with the same device number
JOB02498 *36 ICK004D READY DEVICE 0320 AND REPLY U, ELSE T
I think there could be some problem with the device number so I inquired with
/D M=DEV(0320) --> the output I got is :
IEE174I 05.04.37 DISPLAY M 328
DEVICE 0320 STATUS=OFFLINE
DEST LINK ADDRESS 00
PATH ONLINE Y
CHP PHYSICALLY ONLINE Y
PATH OPERATIONAL Y
DESTINATION CU LOGICAL ADDRESS = 00
CU ND = 00IDSK.002.IBM.02.000000070996
DEVICE NED = 00IDSK.002.IBM.02.000000070996
PATHS NOT VALIDATED
and when I try to make the device number online with /v 0320,online it says
RESPONSE=P390 IEE025I UNIT 0320 HAS NO PHYSICAL PATHS
