After the upgrade to Fast Unload for Db2 for z/OS (PFU) r18 or r19, suddenly a Fast Unload job returned error message
PFU0300E without any change in the Fast Unload JCL or in the FASTUNLOAD statement.
PFU0300E - OPEN FAILED FOR CTLDDN DCB - DDNAME: SYSCTL01
FASTUNLOAD statement was specified as follows.
With releases prior to Fast Unload r18 and r19 FASTUNLOAD ... OUTPUT-FORMAT COMMA-DELIMITED did not support the generation of
LOAD-CONTROL information. Therefore, Fast Unload Job switched to LOAD-CONTROL NONE when OUTPUT-FORMAT COMMA-DELIMITED
was specified in SYSIN and got the warning message PFU0022W.
PFU0022W - OUTPUT-FORMAT COMMA-DELIMITED FORCES LOAD-CONTROL NONE
Because of switching to LOAD-CONTROL NONE, it did not check or require SYSCTL01 DD name.
With Fast Unload r18 and r19 OUTPUT-FORMAT COMMA-DELIMITED can generate LOAD-CONTROL card information. Because of that Fast Unload
Job does not switch to LOAD-CONTROL NONE any more. Also it checks or requires SYSCTL01 DD name which is same as others OUTPUT-FORMAT
with LOAD-CONTROL other than NONE specification process.
In the Fast Unload job LOAD-CONTROL DB2LOAD and OUTPUT-FORMAT COMMA-DELIMITED syntax was specified which indicated that was
requesting to generate Db2 Load control information. Since OUTPUT-FORMAT COMMA-DELIMITED can generate load card information and it is now
acting same as other OUTPUT-FORMAT process.
Requirement to set one of the following:
1. Specify LOAD-CONTROL NONE if you do not want to generate Db2 Load control cards.
2. Add SYSCTL01 SYSOUT=* or SYSCTL01 written to a data set with LOAD-CONTROL other than NONE specified if Db2 Load control
information would like to be generated. (e.g. LOAD-CONTROL DB2LOAD requires SYSCTL01 DD name).
