Resolution

The 2144 msg is just for info. In the SCAN REALVOLS process, DMS can process multi-vol
data sets only when it scans the volume containing the first extent portion. Then, the
data set is processed in its entirety. The 2144 will not cause a non-zero CondCode.

The 2157 is a warning and would cause the CC=4. This alerts you to the uncataloged
data set that should be cleaned up. You would either recatalog it, or more likely delete it.
The uncataloged data set is likely the result of an abend.

Without the proper catalog entry for a multi-vol data set, DMS can not locate all the
segments of the data set, so you have to manually remove it.
