Issue/Introduction

Running report ACFRPTPP in the ACF2 panel,  if the SMF input is looking for GDG(0), it shows up as DSN NOT FOUND.

------------------- ACFRPTPP - CA ACF2 SMF Record Pre      INPUT DSN NOT FOUND
COMMAND ===>                                                                  
                                                                              
 Specify SMF Input Data Set Names (RECIN1 or LOGSTREAM Yes is required)       
    RECIN1    ===> SMF.DAILY(0)    
         

When this is tried in batch, the correct GDG is found.  The batch JCL shows:

//RECMAN1  DD DISP=SHR,DSN=SMF.DAILY(0) 

IEF285I   SMF.DAILY.G0003V00                KEPT   
IEF285I   VOL SER NOS= TSOB01.                                

Is this a bug in the ACF2 CLIST?

 
                     

Environment

Release : 16.0

Component : CA ACF2 for z/OS

Resolution

The problem is not in ACF2, but what ISPF supports.  IBM documents that 

ISPF does not support:

Generation data group (GDG) base data sets
