Hi,

Recently, in our application there were some abends. Jobs abeded with a very misnomer 'JCL ERR'. Upon investigation, I found that IGD17272I was issued, which means VOLUME SELECTION HAS FAILED FOR INSUFFICIENT SPACE. At the time that SMS failed the allocation, this message was generated because one or more of the candidate volumes were rejected for not having enough space. Keeping this in mind, I reduced the primary and secondary quantity for SPACE along with more number of VOLumes -- well, the job went fine. But it leaves me to ask some questions. The JESLOG had these:
Code:
IGD17272I VOLUME SELECTION HAS FAILED FOR INSUFFICIENT SPACE FOR  279
DATA SET WORK.JOBNAME.FILE

STORCLAS (SCVBASS) MGMTCLAS (INTERIM) DATACLAS (DCDEFLT)             

1. It's clear that WORK.JOBNAME.FILE is the victim but why the IGD17272I message repeated for the same file so many times? Does it show multiple iterations for the space-request?

2. Does one think underlying ACS routines can be culprit here, as these Jobs were not abending before since some years now?

3. Any other thought on this.

Thanks for reading through this.

As you can see with each message the REQUESTED SPACE QUANTITY is decremented. I guess that all volumes are processed in that STORCLAS,
and if exhausted give the message.

Thanks for stopping by Peter. Yes, I agree post become a bit long with the "coded text".

I also suspected teh same, but was not very sure about repetition of IGD17272I for the same DSN. Is it a usual behavior that volumes will be processed multiple times for a given STORCLAS?

Hi Peter,

Yes, I agree you did not say that - I'm seeking for guidance so I asked a question, in general. Hope it was not a bother.
