Issue/Introduction

Upgrading from 14.1 to SYSVIEW 16.0, trying to start SYSVIEW stc, the task is abending and SYSVIEW joblog shows the error messages: 

GSV2593E (MAIN) SCFG option Dsn-System-PROFILE VENDOR.SYSVIEW.V160.SYST.CNM4SCFG Invalid LRECL DCB attribute
GSV2593E (MAIN) SCFG option Dsn-System-PROFILE VENDOR.SYSVIEW.V160.SYST.CNM4SCFG Invalid BLKSIZE DCB attribute
GSVX205E (MAIN) Nucleus load failed, reason 24 set up failed for system configuration
GSVX572E (MAIN) MAIN task initialization failed
IEF404I SYSVIEW - ENDED - TIME=07.09.00
$HASP395 SYSVIEW  ENDED - RC=0004

 

Environment

SYSVIEW 15.0 & 16.0 - z/OS supported releases - 

 

Resolution

There is a problem with the 16.0 PROFILE dataset. 

Dsn-System-PROFILE should be pointing to the old profile data set name (14.1) and the Dsn-System-PROFLIB should be pointing to the new profile dataset (SYSVIEW.V160.CNM4BPDL) defined in the INST0007 job of the  SYSVIEW 16.0 SAMPJCL.

So check the SYSVIEW.R160.CNM4SCFG(GSVXGSVX) to have:

Dsn-System-PROFILE     SYSVIEW.R141.CNM4BPRF    <==    the old profile 14.1 dataset  (or old profile 14.2 or 15.0 dataset) 
Dsn-System-PROFLIB     SYSVIEW.R160.CNM4BPDL    <==    the new 16.0 profile dataset
