Issue/Introduction

Using the DISK driver and specifying a dataset name in the TCPHOST keyword:

NODE GRAVALOG,DISK1,GROUP=1,ACQUIRE=WORK,TCPDRIV=DISK,           
               PURGE=NO,RELEASE=NOWORK,CLASS=A,                  
 TCPHOST='DSN=CASPOOL.ESF.&SYSNAME..ESFLOG,MEMBER=+1,DISP=NEW'

However, when a file is created it goes to a different dataset name:

ESF954  File     53 on printer GRAVALOG - DSN=OMVSKERN.GRAVALOG.TCPTRACE.F000053

Environment

Release : 12.0 14.0

Component : CA Spool

Resolution

When using the Data Set Print driver, the keyword to indicate the name of the dataset cannot be abbreviated. It has to be DSNAME instead of DSN.

NODE GRAVALOG,DISK1,GROUP=1,ACQUIRE=WORK,TCPDRIV=DISK,           
               PURGE=NO,RELEASE=NOWORK,CLASS=A,                  
 TCPHOST='DSNAME=CASPOOL.ESF.&SYSNAME..ESFLOG,MEMBER=+1,DISP=NEW'
