Issue/Introduction

Running daily archive process and receive the following messages and user abend in the job SMRARCH

SMR611I PLRDALOL R/C = 17080002 - DSN = your SYSLOG.DAILY. file

SMR665I ERROR ALLOCATING DAILY FILE TO BE ARCHIVED

SMR650W NO AUTOMATIC ARCHIVAL WILL BE PERFORMED TODAY   

USER COMPLETION CODE=0650 

Cause

This is caused by the ALTERN and MASTER file being out of sync

Environment

z/OS any level

CA SMR release 3.4

Resolution

This can be resolved by placing these files back in sync.

The RESOLUTION will be that the SMR MASTER file, the ALTERN     
file and the MVS CATALOG must all reflect the name of the       
file that actually CONTAINS the SYSLOG data from your current date. And,    
this file MUST EXIST and be available to the SMRARCH process    
when it executes the next time.            

The file to be found is in the SMR611I message                     
                                                                
NOTE * MANUALLY EDITING the MASTER and ALTERN files to reflect  
       the correct file name for the dataset that contains the  
       correct syslog is ALLOWED and will not cause a problem.    
       Removal of the lines that may be corrupted or do not match the catalog is ALLOWED and will not cause a problem.
