Hello,

We are using the DADS batch interface from JCL to deallocate and allocate a CICS file.
The sequence of our job:

1.Deallocate CICS file
2.Process and format input file
3.Delete/Define VSAM file - used IDCAMS to delete/define
4.Load VSAM file - used IDCAMS with REPRO to load
5.Take backup of VSAM - used IDCAMS
6.Allocate CICS file

The job ran successfully for years, until we added conditional JCL processing.

The input files were sometimes duplicates so the step to Load VSAM file would fail with RC=12 so we included conditional JCL

COND01A IF OSH00206.RC <= 4 THEN was added to step 5 (take backup of VSAM). OSH00206 is the step 4 (Load VSAM file).
If the step to Load VSAM file had a RC= 4 or less, then
VSAM back step would run
Allocate CICS file would run

ENDIF state followed Step 6 above

Once this was added, job failed in step 6 with the "CONDITION CODE=008 DADSA461 REQUEST FAILED ON ONE OR MORE FILES/DBDS/QUEUES." when we try to allocate the CICS file.

We tried adding a WAIT step between steps 5 & 6. it worked in our TEST environment, but not in our PROD.Can anyone help me in understanding the reason behind this abend and the solution that can avoid this abend from abending again?

Please contact the vendor directly for assistance, providing you're an authorised shop -

http://www.netec2000.com

Or, review the documentation and the verbiage associated with the error message.

I have many customer's who use CAFC and this is what I would do.

When you pay maintenance, it is the vendor's JOB to assist a customer.
