When I use DADS Plus CICS batch utility program DADM to update the control file I receive error message DADBM196.
Article ID: 115928
The client needs to update about 100 files defined to the DADS Plus CICS control file. The client would like to use the DADS Plus CICS batch utility program DADM to update the file during the change control window. When the client runs DADM the batch utility program fails with message DADBM196 VSAM 'OPEN ' FAILURE, R15='08', ERROR='168', MODULE=DADMCBLK AT ADDR='80001B0C'
The DADS Plus CICS control file must be closed when running DADM. In this case CICS was active and the control file was open and allocated to CICS.
Sign on to CICS and close the DADS01 control using CEMT CEMT SET FILE(DADS01) CLO
