Dynamic allocation of a database file results in the attempted allocation of a physical dataset which does not exist. 


The DB905501 is not an IDMS message. It is coming from a third-party tool called ALLOC8 from Precisely (formerly Cogito).

It is performing dynamic allocation, where a physical dataset name is generated according to certain rules put in place by the user, and in this case, the resulting dataset name does not exist.

After this has occurred, IDMS sees that it now has a dataset name to use and attempts its own dynamic allocation but also fails for the same reason - it doesn't exist. That is what the DC205017 messages (which do come from IDMS) indicate.
