Issue/Introduction

Question:

I am working on doing the INIT for LXX and the FXX before bringing up a V14 MUF per RI68209.

My current LXX and FXX have a block size of 27998. 

My INIT is going down with:

FUNCTION=INIT

    AREA=LXX

    BLKSIZE=27998

    VARIABLE=YES    DB10047E - NOT ALLOWED BECAUSE - AREA=LXX and/or BLKSIZE=27998

It looks like I need to use BLKSIZE=32760?

Should I allocate a new LXX?

If so,should it be fixed at 32760 or variable?

 

Answer:

Yes, you need to allocate a new LXX, using parameters BLKSIZE=32760 and VARIABLE=YES.

See DB14.INSTJCL(BDNEW01) job member for an example; see LXXINIT and FXXINIT steps at the bottom (see below).
