Jcl Error Data Set Reservation Unsuccessful

At our site DISP=OLD has to be used for SAS data sets, otherwise we get an error message saying it can't write to the data set. From what you have explained thus far, this condition does not appear to be a SAS or MXG related error, but normal DISP=OLD processing. thanks in advance_________________tp Back to top Display posts from previous: All Posts1 Day7 Days2 Weeks1 Month3 Months6 Months1 YearOldest FirstNewest First MVSFORUMS.com Forum Index -> Job Control Language(JCL) All times Just in case you want to try fixing errors, try the following problems and check if you could fix them with the tips below.

In my JCL I have: //PDB DD DISP=OLD,BUFNO=30,DSN=POSSHR.MXG.SYSA.DAILY.PDB Anything written to the PDB would use the PDB.member form. is it something related with the system catalog backups?? See z/OS MVS JCL User's Guide for more information on GDG ALL or OPTCD=B requests when used within a set of concatenated data sets.

Any other way we might accomplish the same event? ---------------------------------------------------------------------- For IBM-MAIN subscribe / signoff / archive access instructions, send email to [email protected] with the message: GET IBM-MAIN INFO Search Thanks for the heads up on the data Merv_________________If it's true that we are here to help others, then what exactly are the others here for ?

Application Programmer Response: Change the DD statement. That's the reason why knowing the basic solutions to such problems is vital so that next time you experience them, you already know how to eliminate them. ddname The name of the DD statement. + xxx The relative position of a data set within a concatenation of data sets, including all data sets implicitly concatenated (through GDG ALL The answer to Lizette's question is a factor in what might be the correct or "better" solution.

These viruses normally just get away with the anti-virus scan. For batch jobs using WAIT=, also specify the FILEMSGS option, which causes a message to be written to the system log for each allocation attempt, thus allowing system operators to determine

I think this is a SAS issue not so much MXG. IEF211I jobname [procstep] stepname ddname[+ xxx] - DATA SET RESERVATION UNSUCCESSFUL Explanation: The system could not reserve a data set for a job. There are too many pc errors and those mentioned here are the common errors PC users got to encounter. The only time I use a LIBNAME statement is when I'm using "online SAS." I have received a reply from SAS support asking for more details so I will mention the

Having said that, the wise move would be to try trouble-shooting it first yourself.

Resubmit the job for processing. When checking the individual levels, the system found that one of the levels is already reserved by another user. Job1 creates a file ,which triggers another job say Job2. 2.

For more information, see FILEMSGS System Option: z/OS.

After locating the real data set name in a catalog, the system found that the data set is already reserved by another user. I would be very sure to understand all the implications of changing the ALLOCxx member to include WAITALLOC(YES) particularly the impact on GDG processing before doing so. I changed the MGMTCLAS to a non-backup, non-migrate class and that solved that for the most part. On zOS I rarely use a LIBNAME for that reason.

stepname The name of the job step. In the message text: jobname The name of the job. This does smell "site related" - - I just don't know where to point the "Febreze." There isn't much to the SYSOUT. This setting would affect ALL jobs.

You must also check if your anti-virus is capable of determining viruses which trigger �lost DLL files� prompt message. Can anyone please suggest something. When you use the WAIT= option, you must also specify the engine name in the LIBNAME statement if you are accessing uncataloged libraries or libraries that do not reside on disk. There can be plenty of diverse reasons why Jcl Error Data Set Reservation Unsuccessful exist.

All people who use computers will encounter Jcl Error Data Set Reservation Unsuccessful, it usually happens. The type of data set requested and the problem are as follows: * The DD statement requested a non-VIO, temporary, direct access data set. See z/OS MVS JCL User's Guide for more information on GDG ALL or OPTCD=B requests when used within a set of concatenated data sets. also, we have a member ALLOC00 in SYS1.PARMLIB: with the statement SDSN_WAIT WAITALLOC(YES).

The first data set of a concatenation would be +000, but the value +000 is never shown. From time to time we will get a JCL error because dataset reservation failed. stepname The name of the job step. The value n specifies a length of time in clock minutes.

Just like in hardware issues, removing the software which may be causing the issue could also help. This used to occur when backups ran against the volume that a PDB resided on.
