2 Run TMSUDSNB or ISPF panel updates to reset NEXTDSNB field on the erroneous DSNBs

 

 

Additional Information

For the ERR81 msgs 
- update NEXTDSNB field on the DSNB being reported in TMSPTRS to be HEXZEROS - use TMSUDSNB or ISPF panels to achieve this.

Rerun TMSPTRS to confirm the ERR81 and ERR33 msgs have been resolved
