Today I have two VSE/VSAM tips for you.
The first one is related to an VSAM I/O error:
VSAM I/O ERROR AFTER RESTORE TO VOLUMES WITH DIFFERENT DEVICE TYPE AND MODEL
Customer RESTORED to a VOLUME List of Mixed 3390 Mod 3 and MOD 9 DASD. Trying to BACKUP the Catalog afterwards resulted in IDC31329I DISK I/O ERROR.
IDC3302I ACTION ERROR
It is not specifically stated in the RESTORE Command, however, RESTORE does a DEFINE of a CLUSTER and is thus coupled to all restrictions of the DEFINE Command. This includes the
You can avoid this problem, if you only use VOLUMES of the same Device Type and Model in the RESTORE VOLUME List.
We will also describe that in information APAR II14828.
The second one is related to IDCAMS REPRO.
IDC0001I FUNCTION COMPLETED, HIGHEST CONDITION CODE WAS 4 WHEN USING FROMKEY AND TOKEY
Performing an IDCAMS REPRO with the parameters FROMKEY and TOKEY receive "IDC0001I FUNCTION COMPLETED, HIGHEST CONDITION CODE WAS 4" with no additional warning.
You can resolve that issue by changing TOKEY to a KEY that is present in the DATA. The CC 4 only indicates that DATA was not found with a TOKEY as high as specified.
We will describe that in information APAR II14829.
.... and with our next VSE/VSAM book updates.
Have a good weekend.
