Getting B37 abends on temporary datasets during the receive.  Where can I change the size of this allocation?

Insufficient space of chosen device used for allocation


Change where CA MSM attempts to allocate these temporary files.

Go into the Settings tab and look under both System Settings and User Settings for Software Installation. You will see a section for "MVS Program Executor - Output".

Here you can specify a prefix and whether to use SMS or specifically select a volser & unit.  This is what controls the datasets related to the error encountered.
