Hi,
Iam wondering why there is a limitation in not including the SYSIN statement for ICEGENER

I encountered a problem where without sysin the step works and other doesnt

//PS00200 EXEC PGM=ICEGENER
//SYSUT1 DD DSN=XXX.JCL,DISP=SHR
// DD DSN=XXX.JCL.BKUP.GDG,DISP=SHR
//SYSUT2 DD DSN=XXX.BKUP.GDG(+1),
// DISP=(,CATLG,DELETE),SPACE=(TRK,(2000,750),RLSE),
// DCB=(RECFM=FB,LRECL=80),
// UNIT=SYSALLDA
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*
//SYSUDUMP DD SYSOUT=I

Above step works fine, but the below one is throwing RC=12 for SYSIN statement is missing.

//JS00300 EXEC PGM=ICEGENER
//SYSUT1 DD DSN=Dummy,
// DCB=(RECFM=FB,LRECL=80)
//SYSUT2 DD DSN=XXX.Dummy,
// DISP=(NEW,CATLG,CATLG),
// SPACE=(TRK,(1,1),RLSE),
// DCB=(RECFM=FB,LRECL=80),
// UNIT=SYSALLDA
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*
//SYSUDUMP DD SYSOUT=I

can anyone pls. clairy.

thanks,
Raj

sysout from the first step
Code:
DATA SET UTILITY - GENERATE                 
SYNCSORT COPY FEATURE CALLED - RC = 0       

2nd one
Code:
DATA SET UTILITY - GENERATE             
IEB316I DDNAME SYSIN    CANNOT BE OPENED

it shows both are producing the IEB messages

Hi,

are you sure your first job is not generating WER messages ?

your first job is invoking SYNCSORT which from your test shows that it does not need a SYSIN DD.

Your second job is invoking the utility IEBGENER which requires a SYSIN DD.

It appears when DD DUMMY is used for SYSUT1 it runs IEBGENER.

Hello,

Because sometimes the sort is used for the copy and sometimes iebgener is used. . .

For more complete details, suggest you ask Syncsort support. . .
