Guys,
I have a USER.LPALIB which is currently cataalogued in a user catlog via ALIAS from the mastercatalog.
It is also on a different volume to the SYSRES.

Unfortunately, this hangs an IPL when using the PROGxx members of PARMLIB (LPALIB entry) or when IEASYSxx points LPA=xx to a member in PARMLIB.

I haven't been able to find out what the rules are here?
Should this USER.PARMLIB be catalogued in the mastercatalog?
Should it be on the SYSRES volume?
Or both?

Suggestions, please?

Ah, it says:
Data sets to be concatenated to SYS1.LPALIB must be cataloged in the system master catalog or a user catalog identified in the LPALSTxx member. (The system does not check OS CVOLs and only checks user catalogs when a data set name and pack VOLSER are listed in LPALSTxx.)

I have it in a user catalog, but may have missed off the VOL parameter for sure!

I will try that, see if it makes a difference.
Thanks!

The volume operand is the way to go. It can be a symbolic value, so you might want to look up on system symbols too.
