Issue/Introduction

Datacom/AD upgrade 15.0 to 15.1. Running job AXACTUPG STEP2N to assemble the DBSYSID macro for DBSIDPR fails with RC 12.

The errors are:

** ASMA254I *** MNOTE ***             3+     4,CONNECT_ALLOW_PRIORITY = XCF REQUIRES TOGROUP                    01-DBSYS
** ASMA254I *** MNOTE ***             5+     12,ERRORS ENCOUNTERED;   SYSID MODULE NOT GENERATED                01-DBSYS

 

 

Environment

Release : 15.1

Cause

In the the DBSYSID macro the following has been coded: 

CONNECT_ALLOW_PRIORITY=(LOCAL,XCF)

This means XCF will be used to access a MUF in a different LPAR.

The assembly error indicates the TOGROUP parameter is missing which is required  for XCF.

The AXACTUPG job copies the current DBSIDPR source from the 15.0 CUSMAC library.

Resolution

To resolve the problem depends on whether XCF is really in use or not.

Check the current 15.0 MUF to see if the XCF_FROM parameter has been coded. 

If XCF_FROM is coded then XCF is in use.  To resolve the problem, add the TOGROUP=groupname parameter to your current 15.0 CUSMAC member DBSIDPR,

Otherwise If the XCF_FROM parameter is missing then XCF is not in use.  In this case remove XCF from the CONNECT_ALLOW_PRIORITY parameter in your 15.0 CUSMAC member DBSIDPR. It should look like this:

CONNECT_ALLOW_PRIORITY=(LOCAL)

After making the changes to the DBSIDPR  source, resubmit job AXACTUPG starting from the beginning. 

 

 

Additional Information

The parameters required to use XCF are documented in article 38170 How to configure CA Datacom MUF for XCF use.
