APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Missing SEOF mark in the begining of the CA following the last
    preformatted CA of SPEED RRDS cluster. Instead, that CA is partl
    y preformatted leaving number of non-formatted CIs at the end.
    -------------------------------------------------------------
    During initial load of the dataset, Software-End-OF-File
    is expected to be wirtten in the begining of the CA following
    the last preformatted CA(unless it's the last CA of an extent)
    -------------------------------------------------------------
    This issue may lead to the errors in 3rd party applications depe
    ndent on SEOF records.
    (0P17i FILE PROT error on processing such dataset with CA-FAVER)
    At the same time VSAM can process such datasets without problems
    using HUSRBA to identify the End-of-Data.

    Missing SEOF mark at the end of preformatted area of SPEED RRDS
    cluster. Last preformatted CA has number of non-formatted CIs
    at the end.
    

Problem conclusion

  • During initial load of the dataset, Software-End-OF-File(CI
    filled with zeroes) is expected to be wirtten in the first
    Control interval following the last preformatted CA (unless
    it's the last CA of an extent)
    In case of SPEED RRDS dataset that SEOF mark is missing and
    the last CA partially preformatted leaving number of
    non-formatted CIs at the end.
    This issue may lead to the errors in 3rd party applications
    dependent on SEOF records.
    (0P17i FILE PROT error on processing such dataset with
    CA-FAVER)
    At the same time VSAM can process such datasets without
    problems, using HUSRBA to identify the End-of-Data.
