ACF79508 ERRORS DETECTED DURING GSO PROCESSING
ACF79519 ERROR: REFRESH FAILED FOR GSO OPTS REASON: 002

What does this error mean and how can it be resolved?

Environment

Release : 16.0

Resolution

ACF79519 Reason 2 means there is an invalid record structure in the database. To resolve this error, the recommended method would be to DELETE the invalid record and INSERT a new record through TSO ACF. Make sure to save a LIST of the record before deletion in order to accurately re-create the fields on the INSERT.

The alternatives would be either to restore the record from a backup or to analyze the record in the backup to try to manually fix the record format. The first alternative assumes a backup was taken of the record before the invalid record structure was introduced. Either alternative can be difficult to determine.
