APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • APAR OA29467 introduced code that enforced a restriction
    during OPEN so that RESET is not valid for temporary data
    sets. The OPEN fails with an IEC161I 084-061 RC8 if RESET
    is specified.  The enforcement of this restriction has had a
    significant impact to some clients.
    

Local fix

  • Do not use RESET with a temporary VSAM data set.
    
    ADDITIONAL SYMPTOMS:
    IEC142i 113-2C,... message may immediately follow
    IEC161i 084-061 message and reference the same VSAM Cluster.

    ****************************************************************
    VSAM OPEN FAILED WHEN A TEMPORARY DATA SET HAS 'RST'
    SPECIFIED IN THE ACB. THIS WAS CAUSING MANY PROBLEMS
    WITH JOB FAILING AFTER THE PTFS OF OA29467 WERE APPLIED.
    COBOL, IDCAMS AND OTHER VENDOR APPLICATION WERE AFFECTED.
    

Problem conclusion

  • THE RESTRICTION OF 'RST' ON THE ACB FOR A TEMPORARY DATA SET,
    THAT WAS ADDED WITH OA29467 HAS BEEN REMOVED.
