Resolution

When running TSS MODI BACKUP, we got problems on the VSAMBKUP file:

TSS9096I SECURITY FILE BACKUP COMMENCING
TSS9145I VSAMFILE FILE BACKUP COMMENCING
IEC161I 084(048,054,IGG0CLFQ)-003,TSSPROC,TSS,VSAMBKUP,,, 990
IEC161I SBASEPRO.BASEPRVS.TSS.VSAMBKUP,,CATALOG.SBASEPRO
TSS9147E VSAMFILE FILE BACKUP FAILED
TSS9094I SECURITY FILE BACKUP COMPLETE

Solution:

It's due to the 'REUSE' option not being specified when the VSAM backup file was allocated.

'REUSE' which MUST be used for the VSAMBKUP.
