TSSENQ on the Security file

We received this message:
TSS9122I - TSSENQ: UNABLE TO ENQ ON ACID CFS012 , ENQ HELD ON SYSTEM MVS3 *TSS9123A - UNABLE TO OBTAIN SECURITY FILE ENQ. 070 TSS9123A -

After while the system issued a cancel:
TSS9122I - TSSENQ: UNABLE TO ENQ ON ACID CFS012 , ENQ HELD ON SYSTEM MVS3 IEE400I
THESE MESSAGES CANCELLED - 39. IEE400I THESE MESSAGES CANCELLED - 42.
We are trying to understand why it was unable to ENQ on ACID CFS012 and what
exactly was it trying to ENQ on? And what was the ENQ that MVS3 held?
​What caused this and what is the correct response?

Resolution

The most common cause is a batch job doing a lot of TSS administration (ie TSS LIST(ACIDS) DATA(ALL) or a bunch of TSS commands).
Other causes could be a backup being taken while some other type of commands are issued or a batch job running.
