Error description

  • Error "EDC5024I, an attempt was made to close a file that has
    been opened by another thread" was issued while transferring
    QSAM files to a z/OS system.
    The error: "EDC5024I, an attempt was made to close a file that
    had been opened by another thread"  occurs because the
    destination data set has more than 65535 tracks. FTE currently
    opens and closes a data set on one thread but performs read
    and write operations on a different thread.  This only works for
    data sets with less than  65535 tracks on a single volume.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • SUMMARY:
    Attempts to transfer a file to a multi-volume Z/OS data set
    failed with the following error message, 'EDC50241, an
    attempt was made to close a file that had been opened by another
    thread'
    
    USERS AFFECTED:
    The problem only affected Z/OS systems where either the
    destination data set already existed and was multi-volumed or a
    File Transfer Edition created a data set and the Z/OS operating
    system had allocated multiple volumes for it.
    
    PLATFORMS AFFECTED:
    Z/OS only
    

Problem conclusion

  • The problem is resolved such that File Transfer Edition now
    fully supports multi-volumed data sets. In addition the
    restriction that only data sets with up to 65535 tracks are
    supported has now been lifted.
