  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • You will get a message "DFHEV9940S DFHDMPA DCT is incorrectly
    specified." if you do not have an appropriate DLBL coded to
    allow the DFHDMPA dump dataset to open correctly.  The message
    is misleading.

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: Misleading message DFHEV9940S DFHDMPA   *
    *                      DCT is incorrectly specified.           *

    ****************************************************************
    Due to a JCL error whereby the DLBL or TLBL for DFHDMPA (or
    DFHDMPB) is omitted, DFHEVOP may select a printer device type
    to be used to build a DTF. The code that checks for appropriate
    file attributes detects an error as a printer is not suitable
    to handle the dumps, producing:
    
    DFHEV9940S  DFHDMPA DCT is incorrectly specified.
    
    The message incorrectly identifies the file as coming from the
    DCT. CICS also produces message:
    
    DFHDU0306 DBDCCICS Unable to open Transaction Dump Data set
    DFHDMPA
    OPEN ERROR
    
    Additional keywords: msgDFHEV9940S msgDFHDU0306
    

Problem conclusion

  • DFHEVOP has been changed to check that DFHDMPA and DFHDMPB are
    selected to be a sequential disk type or a magnetic tape type,
    and will issue message:
    
    DFHEV9941S DFHDMPx label is missing.
    
    and cause the OPEN to fail if that is not true.
    
    The CICS Transaction Server for VSE/ESA V1.1 Messages and
    Codes GC34-5561-08 will be updated to include the new message
    
    DFHEV9941 S filename label is missing.
    
    Explanation: The open of the DTF for file filename
    was not attempted because CICS has determined that
    there is no DLBL or TLBL filename available in any
    of the label areas.
    
    System Action: The Open of the DTF is not
    attempted, the affected file will not be opened.
    
    User Response: Ensure that either the CICS job,
    the PARSTD/CLASSTD or STDLABEL contains an
    appropriate label statement for the file.
