DFSORT Versions and Releases

Postby msnirmal1487 » Thu Feb 10, 2011 7:42 pm

Hi all,

I have a basic doubt with Versions of DFSORT ...

when i run the following JCL in one our LPAR,

//STEP1 EXEC PGM=ICETOOL,REGION=0M                   
//TOOLMSG  DD SYSOUT=*                               
//DFSMSG  DD SYSOUT=*                                 
//IN       DD DSN=*.RAG.TXT,DISP=SHR           
//OUT      DD SYSOUT=*                               
//TOOLIN   DD *                                       
   DATASORT FROM(IN) TO(OUT) HEADER(2) USING(CTL1)     
/*                                                   
//CTL1CNTL DD *                                       
   SORT FIELDS=(1,2,CH,A)                               
/*                                                   


I get the following error in TOOLMSG

********************************* TOP OF DATA ************************
ICE600I 0 DFSORT ICETOOL UTILITY RUN STARTED                         
                                                                     
ICE632I 0 SOURCE FOR ICETOOL STATEMENTS:  TOOLIN                     
                                                                     
                                                                     
ICE630I 0 MODE IN EFFECT:  STOP                                       
                                                                     
           DATASORT FROM(IN) TO(OUT) HEADER(2) USING(CTL1)           
           $                                                         
ICE614A 0 INVALID OPERATOR                                           
ICE602I 0 OPERATION RETURN CODE:  12                                 
                                                                     
                                                                     
ICE601I 0 DFSORT ICETOOL UTILITY RUN ENDED - RETURN CODE:  12         
******************************** BOTTOM OF DATA **********************


So my doubt is..
Is the DFSORT(the version used is DFSORT REL 14.0) not updated with latest version that supports ICETOOL or is there any other problem with JCL... (I get this doubt as the same JCL runs fine in another LPAR which has Z/OS DFSORT V1R5)

Also can you tell me on the release histroy of DFSORT

Regards,
Nirmal.

DFSORT R14 and z/OS DFSORT V1R5 are no longer supported. z/OS DFSORT V1R10 (for z/Os 1.10 and 1.11) and z/OS DFSORT V1R12 (for z/OS 1.12) are the only supported releases.

DATASORT has been supported in DFSORT's ICETOOL since July, 2008.

Hi Frank...

From your reply, I can understand that DATASORT is not supported by DFSORT R14 ...

I have another question, is there a way to know which PTF was last updated in my LPAR or is the latest PTF updated!!!
