Issue/Introduction

Retting RC -3 for any ADDRESS OPSCTL COF commands.

 

Cause

Possible causes:

1) using an ADDRESS environment only supported under OPS/REX under TSO/REXX

2) syntax error in the ADDRESS statement.

Environment

Release : 13.5 14.0

 

Resolution

For 1), run the REXX program using the OPSIMED (OI) or OPSEXEC (OX) command processors if the ADDRESS environment in use is only supported under OPS/REXX

For 2), make sure the string that follows the ADDRESS keyword is a valid environment. See the link below for a list of address environments:
