Hi,

Recently I got my RACF Id.

After 'READY' command if I use ISPF or PDF command I get the following error.

ISPI003: Following file was not preallocated
ISPPROF

Isn't it a question for your support/system guys?

    1. Suggest you contact your site-support.
    2. In the READY, you need to know how to enter ISPF, because the configuration of each system is different. Try the following few commands:
    ISPSTART
    ISPF
    ISPFPDF
    PDFMENU
    PDF
    ISPFUSER
    3. If none works, suggest you contact your site-support.

At a lot of sites that I have worked the same message is displayed. You will need to ask your admin people to set it up for you as you will probably not yet be aware of the naming standards in use.

Some logon procs will allocate the file if it does not exist, but again from past experience if they dummies at admin have forgotten to define your alias the automated proc will fail.

Site admin is your only hope right now.

I agree with all that you have setup problems.

As temporary fix, use the ALLOC command to create a dataset that can be allocated as ISPPROF:

Code:
ALLOC F(ISPPROF) DS(ISPF.PROFILE) SPACE(1 2) TRACKS       
RECFM(F B) LRECL(80) BLKSIZE(9040) DIR(5) NEW CATALOG


You may wind up using a different dataset later after proper setup is done, at which time you can delete this one.

Pedro,

you forgot to tell him that this in the native TSO environment, at the READY prompt.

I was under the impression that he could only get to the READY prompt.

Use that previous ALLOC command the first time, but this one every other time:
Code:
ALLOC F(ISPPROF) DS(ISPF.PROFILE) SHR REU

Sorry Pedro,

your impression was the same as mine.

I figured that the TS was so inexperienced to handle this typical/easy problem himself,
that he would not know what to do with the info that you provided him.

My profile was allocated for other mainframe region,
and after requesting to Support-Site Team my problem got resolved.
Thanks for your valuable suggestions which helped me in getting the solutions.

Nice to hear that, usually, for such issuses it's good to get in touch base with your site-support group first.
