BTS Batch JCL, BTSIN file

Postby jfdutcher » Mon Jul 07, 2014 5:26 pm

The lines below show my attempt to get a simple Batch BTS run to complete. The content of the BTSIN file is shown, the error that results and also what is displayed in the held output queue. Does anyone have an idea on what change would allow the BTSIN file to be correct ?

BTSIN input:

//G.BTSIN DD *
./T TC=TPROV LANG=CBL MBR=TP2P0100 PSB=TP2P0100 TYPE=MSG
./D DDOF=327029 EOM=$
/FORMAT MO9318E1
TPROV
L21C25 '06' L21C53 '000007059'
ENTER $
/*

BTSOUT:

( My efforts at 'Googling' for U1001 seem only to say something about address space, but I don't relate to it)

User Response:
Verify that the DOF FEATURE option agrees with the FEAT= operand coded on
the ./D or ./T command, that the correct version of the IMS format blocks
are being used, that MOD and DOF compilation date and time match, that the
IMS error default output descriptions are in the format data set, and that
no I/O error has occurred. If necessary, rebuild the format blocks.

All of my BTSIN card sets have:
./D DDOF=327029
./D TYPE=3270-A2 SIZE=(24,80)

This matches up with all of our MFS files statements of:
DEV TYPE=3270-A2,FEAT=IGNORE,

I think what BTS is trying to say is that it can't find a screen DOF to match the message format. That would explain the fact that it was left with messages in the output queue.

In your situation, I would find an existing BTS proc, and run an existing transaction/program through it until you were sure your JCL is in good order. THEN try your program.

Very helpful.....revised some region setting parameters and actually got the BTSRC000 program to take off. It fails though with a U4083, which the Google exercises say is maybe due to "an invalid backward chain pointer". It's bizzare not to get something a bit more informative.

Don't blame IMS for not having good messages when you're searching for them on Google!

Make sure you are looking at the message manual for the program that is actually throwing the error.

Did you find existing JCL/procs that work? If so, what kind of memory allowance (REGION=) parm did they have?
