I just completed the process to install my CA Datacom/AD software, and when running the jobs to migrate my existing database for CA Technologies applications, I received many errors from the DDRTVCAT program: DDRTVC0035 FIELD ATTRIBUTE HAS BEEN CHANGED. I didn't change my application, so why am I receiving these messages?
These messages are produced by the DDRTVCAT program. This program will compare the current database definition in the Datadictionary to a predefined definition (called a Basis module) that is provided by the CA Technologies application that uses CA Datacom/AD. If there is a discrepancy between what is found in the Datadictionary and what is in the Basis module, these DDRTVC0035 or other messages are produced.
There is only one reason for this to happen - the Basis module being used is not the correct one to match the Datadictionary definition. This has two causes:
Here are a few examples of how this problem could occur in the DDRTVCAT program, using the Basis module L7601 for CA Workload Automation Restart Option for z/OS Schedulers (formerly called CA 11™ Workload Automation Restart and Tracking or CA 11):
To run the DDRTVCAT program successfully, it is important to use the correct Basis module. If you are experiencing the DDRTVC0035 or other errors, please be sure that the load library specified in the STEPLIB of this program is the correct version to match your application's operation and Datadictionary definition.
As always, please contact CA Technologies support for CA Datacom if you have further questions.
