Environment

Resolution

The datasets which you are referencing are temporary datasets created by CA GEN.

Please look at the job output on the JESYSMSG DDname and do a find for "LKPRT" and find the name of datasets such as these:
userid.BAT.D7101641.IEF.LKPRT.DLL
userid.BAT.D7101641.IEF.LKPRT.LINK

Regarding the node of D7101641 of the above dataset names, please know that this node is composed of a combination of the current date and time values.  So D7101641 can be explained as follows:

D:  stands for Date
7:  last digit of the current Julian Date as represented by &SYSJDATE.  Today is the 247th day in 2020, so &SYSJDATE returns 20.247.
10: current hour of the current time as represented by &SYSTIME
16: current minute of the current time as represented by &SYSTIME
41: current second of the current time as represented by &SYSTIME
