Environment

Release : 15.1

Component : DATACOM/DB

Resolution

This is a new method of cataloging changes to a Dynamic System Table's definition without closing the entire DST database. 
It was introduced by PTF SO15152. It needs to be applied first.
In this case the  PTF was applied but the STEPLIB in the DDUPDATE JCL was pointing to the base 15.1 library which did not have the PTF applied.
