Error occurs in JCL

Postby dulingyun@gmail.com » Mon Sep 06, 2010 2:38 pm

Run Jscan to check JCL, the following error shows

DSS0608E - ISPF PACKED MEMBER TBS420 INVALID FOR JLJPB
DSS0600A - DSN = TBS210.PDS.PROCLIB

Actually, the TBS420 is valid, it seems that the JCL cannot access TBS210.PDS.PROCLIB.

Could anyone can help me? What is error 'DSSXXXX"? Which type error is 'DSSXXXX'?

that' s a common misunderstandig of ISPF processing

ISPF can store <things> in packed format to save space
when browsin/viewing/editing ISPF will under the covers <unpack> the <thing>
so You will not be aware of the <packed> status

to fix the issue just edit the thing, in the command line enter PACK OFF ( IIRC) and type SAVE
sometimes just hitting PF3 does not change the packed status ( could have been some missing fixes )

the DSS.... messages are certainly from the jcl scanner

This is 100% correct! You should be glad the JCL scanner goes to the data to see if it's in ISPF packed format. If the job had run all it would see is gibberish, which is what ISPF packed data looks like. There is nothing to automatically expand ISPF packed data outside of ISPF.
