Issue/Introduction

When a TSS MODIFY BACKUP is issued, the following error messages are received:

TSS9079E INVALID DATA,       
TSS9076I CURRENT OPTION IS <BACKUP>, 
TSS0301I MODIFY FUNCTION FAILED, RETURN CODE = 8

TSS MODIFY STATUS shows:

BACKUP(INACTIVE)

Here are the messages when the Top Secret proc was started:

TSS9660I VERSION=16.0 KO
*TSS9097E BACKUP FILE UNAVAILABLE
TSS9107I VSAMFILE Successfully Opened
TSS9107I VSAMPATH Successfully Opened

Resolution

The TSS9079E INVALID DATA, when doing a TSS MODIFY BACKUP, usually means Top Secret was unable to open the backup file during Top Secret startup. The TSS9097E and TSS9004I messages during the startup of Top Secret indicate there was a problem opening the Top Secret BDAM and VSAM backup files.

Verify the backup BDAM/VSAM datasets exist, are cataloged, available, and accessible, and that neither of the dataset names are misspelled in the BACKUP and VSAMBKUP DD statements in the Top Secret startup proc.
