Issue/Introduction

Problem:

After installing a new release of CA Chorus Software Manager (CSM), the MSMTC task fails to initialize successfully.  
The messages show that the failure is due to insufficient authority when attempting to update a dataset in the Master Catalog.
The started task displays messages similar to the following:

STC12345  IEF695I START MSMTC WITH JOBNAME MSMTC  IS ASSIGNED TO USER MSMUSR, GROUP MSMGRP
STC12345  $HASP373 MSMTC STARTED

Cause

There is no dataset High Level Qualifier (HLQ) defined in the csm.SAMPLIB DBINIT member

As distributed, the following parms are commented out in the csm.SAMPLIB DBINIT member

                   #sisGimunzipTempPrefix=TTECPMG
                                      - and -
                   #sisExecutorServerDsnPrefix=TTECPMG

Additionally, the csm.SAMPLIB(DBINIT) is allocated to the //DBINIT DD of the default MSMTC JCL 

 

Environment

Release: 6.0 or 6.1
Component: CSM (Mainframe Software Manager) 

Resolution

  • Edit the csm.SAMPLIB DBINIT member and uncomment the statements above
  • Modify the MSMTC proc and change the DDNAME of //DBINIT to //DBUPDATE
  • Re execute the MSMTC STC   

Additional Information
