ALIAS DELETION

Postby Bad Man » Wed Apr 17, 2013 9:36 pm

Hi I was trying to define an alias but it says

DEF ALIAS(NAME( xx.XX.XX ) +
RELATE( COOL.YUYU.PROD.FAIMS.LOADLIB ))
IDC3013I DUPLICATE DATA SET NAME
IDC3009I ** VSAM CATALOG RETURN CODE IS 8 - REASON CODE IS IGG0CLEG-44
IDC3003I FUNCTION TERMINATED. CONDITION CODE IS 12

So I tried pulling it up in 3.4 but it is not there then I tried to delete

DELETE ( xx.XX.XX ) ALIAS
IDC3012I ENTRY COOL.YUYU.FAIMS.LOADLIB NOT FOUND
IDC3009I ** VSAM CATALOG RETURN CODE IS 8 - REASON CODE IS IGG0CLEG-42
IDC0551I ** ENTRY OEM.PROD.FAIMS.LOADLIB NOT DELETED
IDC0001I FUNCTION COMPLETED, HIGHEST CONDITION CODE WAS 8

The way to delete an alias does not have a lot of options through 3.2 V. One thing tells me is because we have a dataset existing under the alias that is the reason the DSN here has two aliases.

When I define an alias, I always specify the catalog to be used to ensure I know where the alias is going. Have you tried your DEFINE with a catalog included?

From "MVS System Messages, Vol 6 (GOS-IEA)" for the first IDC3009I message:
Explanation: A request to place a record by key into an ICF catalog resulted in a duplicate key error from VSAM.

Programmer Response: If the spelling and catalog being used are correct, run the DIAGNOSE command to analyze the catalog.
Have you tried the programmer response section?

The problem was that this alias should be in the same USERcat as the dataset it is being defined to with..This alias was a multi level alias...
