Resolution

Review the CA 7 Started Task JCL and verify if the SYSTCPD DD statement was added to the CA 7 JCL. The SYSTCPD DD statement points to the data set containing system wide TCP/IP definitions. If there are multiple TCP/IP environments, then code the SYSTCPD DD statement pointing to the definition library for the TCP/IP.

Add the following DD to the CA7ONL procedure.

//SYSTCPD DD DSN=VTAM.TCPIP.DATA,DISP=SHR
