Issue/Introduction

We tried to run a REQABORT command from a dataset, and got an abend with the S013-20 open error.  Here is the error message:

IEC141I 013-20,IGG0191A,MUFABC,DBUTLTY,SYSIN,714E,ATA907
MYHLQ.MUFABC.CREATED.FILE.REQABORT   

The file definition for this file shows:

Device type . . . . : 3390 
Data class . . . . . : **None**
Organization  . . . : PS
Record format . . . : FB
Record length . . . : 37       
Block size  . . . . : 32486

The command executed fine when it was included instream in the JCL.  Is there a limitation to including DBUTLTY commands in a dataset?

Cause

Using a SYSIN file that is not defined with an LRECL of 80 bytes wlll cause the S013-20.

Environment

Component : CA Datacom/DB

Component : CA Datacom/AD

Resolution

As with SYSIN files for almost any other utility, the LRECL is expected to be 80 bytes. You can use a standard PDS with 80-byte records, or a single PS file with a length of 80 bytes and you should be fine.

Additional Information
