Issue/Introduction

In an Endevor Processor we have a DSN=IGNORE coded as follows: 

 //SYSLIB DD DSN=IGNORE,DISP=SHR

After upgrading to 18.0.12, we are getting allocation errors as documentd below.  We did not see these errors in our previous release?

C1A0010E ALLOCATION ERROR RC=1708-0002, DDNAME=SYSLIB 
C1A0011E IKJ56228I DATA SET IGNORE NOT IN CATALOG OR CATALOG CAN NOT BE ACCESSED
C1A0010E ALLOCATION ERROR RC=9710-42A4, DDNAME=SYSIN 
C1A0011E IKJ56894I FILE SYSIN NOT ALLOCATED+ 
C1A0012E IKJ56894I STORAGE MANAGEMENT SUBSYSTEM DETECTED AN ERROR, EITHER MESSAGES WERE NOT REQUESTED OR A SYST

Why are we getting these errors?  

Environment

Release: 18.0, 18.1
Component: ENDBAS

Resolution

In the ENCOPTBL there is an option: 

*********************************************************************** 
* IF THE DATASET NAME IN A PROCESSOR IS CODED USING THE DSN=IGNORE 
* PARAMETER, THE DD STATEMENT IS NOT ALLOCATED. THIS INCLUDES DD'S 
* THAT ARE IN THE CONCATENATION. 
* O0000524 
*---------------------------------------------------------------------* 
* ENHOPT IGNORE_SKIP_ALLOC=ON 


Did you have this enabled in the previous release - probably!  Please verify that the Options you enabled in your previous release are enabled in the ENCOPTBL.
