Hi all,

This is regarding the iebgener utility:

Please find the code:
Code:

//STEP01   EXEC PGM=IEBGENER                                       
//SYSUT1   DD DSN=&SID..GL.YY.TER,DISP=SHR                         
//SYSUT2   DD DSN=&SID..GL.YY.BKUP.TER(+1),DISP=(NEW,CATLG,DELETE),
//         DCB=(LRECL=80,RECFM=FB,DSORG=PS,BLKSIZE=0),             
//         SPACE=(CYL,(2,2),RLSE),                                 
//         UNIT=SYSDA                                             
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*                                             
//SYSOUT   DD SYSOUT=*                                             
//SYSIN    DD DUMMY                     


---Where SYSUT1 used here is a GDG Base(all the generations present here are all empty)

I am getting the following message in the spool:


DATA SET UTILITY - GENERATE
WER400A SYSUT1 IS AN UNINITIALIZED SEQUENTIAL DISK DATA SET
SYNCSORT COPY FEATURE CALLED - RC = 12



Can you please help me in resolving the problem.


Thanks

Pankaj

Hi,

Its not the same problem that we are facing.

We are not using the SYNCSORT in our program.

As I think,It's called by the IEBGENER internally.

We have to deal with the IEBGENER.

Please help

AFAIK - IEBGENER is an IBM utility; SYNCSORT is a non-IBM utility, so I can't imagine a situation where IEBGENER is using SYNCSORT internally.

I am using the utility IEBGENER IN STEP01 and the JOB is abended in that step only, There is no question of using SYNCSORT as we don't need it.

Then why is the message in the spool showing

"SYNCSORT COPY FEATURE CALLED - RC = 12"

Here is a quote from the fine manual:
Quote:
Note: If you have the DFSORT product installed, you should be using ICEGENER as an alternative to IEBGENER when making an unedited copy of a data set or member. It may already be installed in your system under the name IEBGENER. It generally gives better performance.


Try it.... icon_lol.gif

That's a quote from DFSORT's fine manual and does not apply to Syncsort.

However, Syncsort's SYNCGENR is somewhat similar DFSORT's ICEGENER. If your site has SYNCGENR installed as an automatic replacement for IEBGENER, then when you use PGM=IEBGENER, you will actually get SYNCGENR (note that IBM has nothing to do with this). The WER messages indicate that's the case here.

THE ONLY MISTAKE IS YOU HAVE WRONGLY CODED THE SYSUT1.

IEBGENER IS UTILITY USED TO COPY FROM SEQUENTIAL FILE
PLEASE GIVE STRESS ON SEQUENTIAL
YOU SPECIFIED BASE IN THE SYSUT1 WHICH IS A GDG, AND NOT A
SEQUENTIAL FILE.

SO THE RESOLUTION IS EITHER SPECIFY THE PHYSICAL SEQUENTIAL DATA SET OR A MEMBER OF PARTITIONED DATA SET.

IF I AM WRONG SOMEWHERE PLEASE CORRECT ME

THANK YOU

DO SEND ME THE REPLY
