Issue/Introduction

We are getting the following error messages. We have DFC set up and can't understand why it's not allocating the file.  

C1A0010E  ALLOCATION ERROR RC=1708-0002, DDNAME=SYSLMOD                                       
C1A0011E  IKJ56228I DATA SET BST.GL.LOAD123 NOT IN CATALOG OR CATALOG CAN NOT BE ACCESSED  
C1A0017E  DFC TABLE MISMATCH OR NEW ALLOC FAILED:  DSN=BST.GL.LOAD123   

Cause

DFC is not allocating the file. Require more information. A DFC trace is required.

Environment

Release : 18.1 +

Component : Endevor Software Change Manager

Resolution

Enable the following traces to identify the problem with deferred file creation:

//BSTERR  DD SYSOUT=*

//EN$TRAL0 DD SYSOUT=*       DYNAMIC DATASET ALLOC

//EN$TRDFC DD SYSOUT=*       DYNAMIC FILE ALLOCATION    

//EN$TRALC  DD SYSOUT=*     DYNAMIC ALLOCATION TRACE

Trace output explained:

BC1PDFC2 CHNH=00000000     INPUT DSN=BST.GL.LOAD123           <- This indicates DFC is looking for this dataset in the DFC parm

The dataset ends with a LOADB123 and not LOAD123 as expected. The value in Processor or DFC parm are incorrect.
