Issue/Introduction

Installing Sysview 16.0, the first installation job (INST0001) is causing  issues when the datasets including the SMP/E datasets need to be allocated on NONSMS volumes.

It seems that even if  SMS=NO is specified into the GSVINS installation macro,  SMS ACS routines are getting invoked during the allocation of the datasets and the job fails.

 

Environment

Release : 16.0

Component : SYSVIEW

Resolution

As verified, the ACS routines are always involved assigning STORCLAS=STANDARD when SMS=NO.

In order to assign  STORCLAS=NONSMS and the correct VOLUME, in INSTALL job the following setting need to be specified:

SMS=YES

STOCLAS=NONSMS

SMSVOL=vvvvvv

where vvvvvv is  the volume for the datasets allocation

Moreover, VOLUME(vvvvvv)  (volume for the SMP/E datasets allocation) needs to be added to the IDCAMS input INST0001 installation job.
