Issue/Introduction

Running JCLCheck as ROSCOE subset and using online ROSCOE command JCK to validate a JCL with a HFS/ZFS file name in it , as the sample below:

//JCROSCOE JOB JCROSCOE,'2 ORDERS',MSGCLASS=O,CLASS=K,REGION=4M         
//*------------------------------------------------------------------*  
//* COPY HFS FILE TO MAINFRAME                                          
//*------------------------------------------------------------------*  
//J03     EXEC PGM=IKJEFT01                                             
//STDOUT   DD  SYSOUT=*,DCB=(RECFM=V,LRECL=256)                         
//IN         DD  PATH='/USER/APPL/TEMP/HBCBPSMG.H2BGVCP7.OUT'             
//             PATHOPTS=ORDONLY                                         
//OUT      DD  DSN=JCROSCOE.MODEL.HFS.DETAIL(+1),                       
//             DISP=(NEW,CATLG,DELETE),                                 
//             SPACE=(TRK,(30,3),RLSE),                                 
//             DCB=(DSORG=PS,RECFM=FB,BLKSIZE=23456,LRECL=32)           
//SYSTSPRT DD  DUMMY                                                    
//SYSTSIN  DD  *                                                        
  OCOPY INDD(IN) OUTDD(OUT) TEXT CONVERT((BPXFX311)) TO1047             
/*                                                                      

It could happen that the JCK validation fails with the following error:

  //IN       DD  PATH='/USER/APPL/TEMP/HBCBPSMG.H2BGVCP7.OUT',            
        //             PATHOPTS=ORDONLY                                 
CAY6392E UNKNOWN PATH VALIDATION ERROR - RETURN CODE = '0000009C', REASON
        CODE = '0B0C00FB'                                              
                                                                        
CAY6000 1 STATEMENT FLAGGED IN JOB 'JCROSCOE' MAXIMUM SEVERITY WAS 8                                                      
while the same JCL is correctly validated using Batch JCLCheck or EJCK command under TSO/ISPF.     

What to check as possible cause of this error in Roscoe session?

Resolution

When the error CAY6392E UNKNOWN PATH VALIDATION ERROR occurs, it is important to check the SYSLOG of the involved Lpar, researching for any security warning message that involves the ROSCOE STC.

In fact, one of the main reasons causing this error is that the ROSCOE STC User defined to the Security Product doesn't have an OMVS SEGMENT defined, but it requires one to correctly manage/access HFS/ZFS files. 

If this doesn't solve the problem Please open a Case in Broadcom Support Portal.
