A DMS archive or backup can produce the following error below:
ADSDF102 4106 ADR793E (XXX)-XXXXX(XX), DATA SET XXXXXXXX.XXXXXXXX.XXXXXXXX ON VOLUME XXXXXX IS AN INCONSISTENT PDSE AND CANNOT BE DUMPED
We then implemented the PTF SO00461 and the error still occur.
What should we do to proceed?
Release: SMDI3900200-12.5-Disk-Backup and Restore-for z/OS
The problem happens after a PDSE was restored by CA Disk.
To fix the problem, you need to install the PTF SO00461.
Before the PTF installation:
Between the time the PTF is installed and all PDSE's are restored, they are candidate for a failure at next Backup or Archive.
As a circumvention, try to set RECATMIG to a value of Y and re-run the job to see if that fixes the error.
If that does not work, you can preallocate a new PDSE and restore the data into it.
How to locate bad PDSE?
You can use to locate a bad PDSE an IEHLIST. The IEHLIST will check the information for the PDSE status. If you see ' I ' as PDSE indicator that means the PDSE is OKay, if you get instead ' ? ' then the PDSE is impacted.
After the PTF installation:
When the PTF SO00461 is installed, the Restore makes the VVDS entry to be correct.
