Resolution

  1. Allocate a trace output file, FILE.NAME' :  LRECL=133, BLKSIZE=1330, RECFM=FB and DSORG=PS
  2. From the command line in ISPF
    First type: TSO ALLOC F(BSTERR) DA('FILE.NAME') SHR
    Then hit ENTER
    Next type: TSO ALLOC F(EN$TROPT) DA('FILE.NAME') SHR
    Then hit ENTER again
    Bring up foreground Endevor or QuickEdit. Exit Endevor application and review file.

You can confirm the allocation by issuing the 'TSO ISRDDN' command. You should see the DDNAMES BSTERR and EN$TROPT allocated to that file.
