LMINIT is not being recognized

Postby nikesh_rai » Tue Feb 05, 2013 11:58 am

Hi,

I was trying to allocated data id for some data sets using LMINIT, but somehow LMINIT is not being recognized. Can anyone please help me for this.

Here is my code:

XLAYDST = DPFCBPR.UNTE.COPYLIB                           
"ALLOC FI(INPUT1) DA('"XLAYDST"') SHR REUSE"             
"ALLOC FI(OUPUT1) DA("'TEMP0001.COPYLIB'")",             
       "NEW RECFM(F,B) DIR(10) LRECL(80) BLKSIZE(80)" ,   
       "TRACKS SPACE(10,10)"                             
"LMINIT DATAID(INDD) DATASET("'DPFCBPR.UNTE.COPYLIB'")"   
SAY 'RC IN : ' RC                                         
"LMINIT DATAID(OUDD) DATASET("'DPFCB.TEMP0001.COPYLIB'")"
SAY 'RC OU : ' RC                                         
"FREE FI(INPUT1 OUPUT1)"                                 


and output is coming:

IKJ56500I COMMAND LMINIT NOT FOUND                                     
    32 *-*  "LMINIT DATAID(INDD) DATASET("'DPFCBPR.UNTE.COPYLIB'")"     
       +++ RC(-3) +++                                                   
RC IN :  -3                                                             
IKJ56500I COMMAND LMINIT NOT FOUND                                     
    34 *-*  "LMINIT DATAID(OUDD) DATASET("'DPFCB.TEMP0001.COPYLIB'")"   
       +++ RC(-3) +++                                                   
RC OU :  -3

LMINIT is not a TSO command but an ISPF command - the deafult environment for commands is TSO. You have to direct your cammand to ISPF.
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.

Thanks Nicc,

I tried with this code as well..

XLAYDST = DPFCBPR.UNTE.COPYLIB                                   
"ALLOC FI(INPUT1) DA('"XLAYDST"') SHR REUSE"                     
"ALLOC FI(OUPUT1) DA("'TEMP0001.COPYLIB'")",                     
       "NEW RECFM(F,B) DIR(10) LRECL(80) BLKSIZE(80)" ,         
       "TRACKS SPACE(10,10)"                                     
"ISPEXEC LMINIT DATAID(INDD) DATASET("'DPFCBPR.UNTE.COPYLIB'")" 
SAY 'RC IN : ' RC                                               
"ISPEXEC LMINIT DATAID(OUDD) DATASET("'DPFCB.TEMP0001.COPYLIB'")"
SAY 'RC OU : ' RC                                               
"FREE FI(INPUT1 OUPUT1)"                                         


and still getting error:
ISPF service call not allowed during exit invocation.     
RC IN :  20                                               
ISPF service call not allowed during exit invocation.     
RC OU :  20                                               
***                                                       
                                                         


is there any other way to do the same
Thanks

why not search the forum..
there are gazillions of working snippets posted

and the fact that You did not <understand> the suggestion
You have to direct your cammand to ISPF.


implies that You will have a lot of reading to do
about the environments available at run time and on how to Address a command to the proper one

here
http://publibz.boulder.ibm.com/cgi-bin/ ... s/IKJ4BK90
and here
http://publibz.boulder.ibm.com/cgi-bin/ ... s/ISPZPM70

not the latest but more than enough to get started

You can search for the manuals related to Your level of ISPF starting from
http://www-03.ibm.com/systems/z/os/zos/ ... index.html
cheers

Thanks Enrico,

I tried with address command as well, and getting same error

XLAYDST = DPFCBPR.UNTE.COPYLIB                           
"ALLOC FI(INPUT1) DA('"XLAYDST"') SHR REUSE"             
"ALLOC FI(OUPUT1) DA("'TEMP0001.COPYLIB'")",             
       "NEW RECFM(F,B) DIR(10) LRECL(80) BLKSIZE(80)" ,   
       "TRACKS SPACE(10,10)"                             
"FREE FI(INPUT1 OUPUT1)"                                 
ADDRESS ISPEXEC "LMINIT DATAID(INDD)",                   
                "DATASET("'DPFCBPR.UNTE.COPYLIB'")"       
SAY 'RC IN : ' RC                                         
ADDRESS ISPEXEC "LMINIT DATAID(OUDD)",                   
                "DATASET("'DPFCB.TEMP0001.COPYLIB'")"

unfortunately You did not post enough info to debug
see here for a working snippet

clist-rexx/topic6538-10.html?hilit=LMINIT

there is a spurious char in the IF statements ( probably a TAB from cut and paste )
but nothing that makes the script unreadable

if You search here using enrico* as user
http://ibmmainframes.com/index.php
You will find many many more snippets
cheers

Thanks Enrico and Nicc,

I just wanted to copy a pds member to another pds member, but I don't know why ISPF functions are not working. non of the LMINIT or LMCOPY is being working nither the address ispexec is working here. I have checked with my peers as well. they are also facing same issue. somehow I have checked REXX manual and I got the SMCOPY option and its working fine..

Here is the code:

XLAYDST = DPFCBPR.UNTE.COPYLIB                           
XLAYDSM = "DPFCBPR.UNTE.COPYLIB(FLXLWV55)"               
"ALLOC FI(INPUT1) DA('"XLAYDST"') SHR REUSE"             
"ALLOC FI(OUPUT1) DA("'TEMP0001.COPYLIB'")",             
       "NEW RECFM(F,B) DIR(10) LRECL(80) BLKSIZE(80)" ,   
       "TRACKS SPACE(10,10)"                             
                                                         
"SMCOPY FDS('"XLAYDSM"')",                               
      "TDS("'TEMP0001.COPYLIB(FLXLWV55)'")",             
      "NOTRANS"                                           
"FREE FI(INPUT1 OUPUT1)"


Thanks
Nikesh

might be the case of getting in touch with Your support
there are gazillions of products which use the ISPF dialog facilities

but for such a task why waste time writing a REXX script
and not use the 3.3 ISPF options out of the box

SMCOPY is pretty weird in its behavior so I would not suggest using it for <general> use

it might work, but also it might give odd results ( BTDTGTTS )

The code, as posted, worked just fine for me. However, just for the record, it will give a return-code of 20 if it's executed in a TSO-only environment, i.e. one where ISPF has not been started.

Hi MrSpock,

Can you please post the same code here, I would like to see if its working. Then I will give one more try with your posted code.
