Issue/Introduction

TSO logon completed OK. At entering ISPF gets error message:

ISPI003  Following file was not preallocated:  ISPPROF 

What is needed to remove this error?

Environment

Release : 16.0

Component : CA ACF2 for z/OS

Resolution

ISPF requires a logging dataset for every user. The ISPPROF is usually allocated or defined in the TSO proc used.  The dataset can be pre-allocated or allocated at the READY prompt.

To allocate at the ready prompt use the following command:

ALLOC F(ISPPROF) DS(ISPF.PROFILE) SPACE(1 2) TRACKS RECFM(F B) LRECL(80) BLKSIZE(9040) DIR(5) NEW CATALOG
