Issue/Introduction

Running DBUTLTY INIT AREA=CXX fails with error:

 DB13001E - UNEXPECTED RETURN CODE 76 (83) OPEN ERROR

The following messages are in the joblog:

IEC143I 213-B8,IFG0194D,J02220DB,CXXINIT,CXX,3A3F,SYSX00,  277
    277            hlq.CEMMUF.CXX
DB02405I - PXX START J02220DB 0 76(083) OPEN -0-    D-1 DBUTLTY INIT
DB02406I - PXX END - OPEN ERROR
DB00501E - OPEN ERROR - RETURN CODE 76 (083) CXX=CEMEMUF  CXX
DB10045E - ABNORMAL TERMINATION DUE TO ERROR(S)

 

Cause

According to the IBM documentation, the error  IEC143I 213-B8 means:

B8
An OPEN was attempted against an extended-format data set with a DCB that specified EXCP. EXCP is not supported for extended-format data sets.

Datacom datasets including the CXX, cannot be allocated as an extended format datasets. Article 32474 explains this,

CA Datacom database files for the index and data areas cannot be defined as Extended Format. 
This means that they cannot be defined with the DSNTYPE=EXT SMS Data Class nor can they be defined with DSNTYPE=EXTREQ or DSNTYPE=EXTPREF in the JCL.

Environment

Release : 15.1

Component : CA Datacom/DB

Resolution

Allocate the file as a non-extended dataset.

If SMS allocated the file automatically, check the joblog for SMS messages which shows the SMS rule causing the file to be allocated to an extended dataset:

 IGD17070I DATA SET hlq.CEMMUF.CXX
 ALLOCATED SUCCESSFULLY WITH 1 STRIPE(S).
 IGD17150I DATA SET hlq.CEMMUF.CXX IS
 ELIGIBLE FOR ACCESS METHOD ENCRYPTION. KEY LABEL IS
 (hlq.XXX.XXX.XX.X)
 IGD101I SMS ALLOCATED TO DDNAME (CXX     )
         DSN (hlq.CEMMUF.CXX           )
         STORCLAS (STD) MGMTCLAS (NOMANRLS) DATACLAS (LARGEPE)
         VOL SER NOS= SYSX00

The SMS rule will need to be changed not to force CA Datacom files to be allocated to a class for extended datasets.
