When running the APPLY job for a new CA OPS/MVS installation, the following messages can be seen :

IKJ56228I DATA SET USER.HWMCAEXP NOT IN CATALOG OR CATALOG CAN NOT BE ACCESSED

In the SMP/E report: 

GIM54701E ** ALLOCATION FAILED FOR HWMCAEXP - IKJ56228I DATA SET USER.HWMCAEXP NOT IN CATALOG OR CATALOG CAN NOT BE

              ACCESSED.

 GIM28301E ** ALLOCATION FAILED FOR HWMCAEXP, WHICH IS REQUIRED IN ORDER TO PROCESS LOAD MODULE OPHMCBLA. THE SYSMOD IS

              CCLXD54.

 GIM28301E ** ALLOCATION FAILED FOR HWMCAEXP, WHICH IS REQUIRED IN ORDER TO PROCESS LOAD MODULE OPHMCBLI. THE SYSMOD IS

              CCLXD54.

 

The same messages above occur for several other modules.

 

 

Cause

When installing the FMID CCLXD54 - CA OPS/MVS OPSHMC REXX some external libraries are required.

 

Environment

Release: 13.5
Component: OPS/MVS 

Resolution

If this function CCLXD54 - CA OPS/MVS OPSHMC REXX is not required you can just remove the FMID CCLXD54 from the apply job.

If this FMID should be installed, then it is necessary to follow the instructions in the section "Tailor External Library Names for Your Site" of the documentation at below link :

https://techdocs.broadcom.com/content/broadcom/techdocs/us/en/ca-mainframe-software/automation/ca-ops-mvs-event-management-and-automation/13-5/installing/prepare-for-installation/tailor-external-library-names-for-your-site.html

Specifically the following items are required for the FMID CCLXD54:

 * /user/dll/

IBM Hardware Management Console Application API DLL USS directory

CA OPS/MVS

 OPSHMC REXX function (FMID CCLXD54) requires this USS directory.

Download the DLL file named HWMCAAPI from the IBM website into the file HWMCAAPI of this USS directory. The file is available for download from http://www.ibm.com/servers/resourcelink; click Services, then API, then z/OS. For more information, see IBM manual

 System z Application Programming Interfaces 

(SB10-7030).

* USER.HWMCAEXP

IBM Hardware Management Console Application API sidedeck library

CA OPS/MVS

 OPSHMC REXX function (FMID CCLXD54) requires this library.

This library must be RECFM=FB/LRECL=80.

Download the sidedeck file named HWMCAAPI.x from the IBM website into the member HWMCAAPI of this library. The file is available for download from http://www.ibm.com/servers/resourcelink; click Services, then API, then z/OS. For more information, see IBM manual

 System z Application Programming Interfaces

 (SB10-7030).

 

It is important to remark that, during this phase, the DLL file named HWMCAAPI, downloaded from IBM site and included in the Uss directory HWMCADLL pointed by the  SMP/E installation, should be present as phase in capital letters otherwise the SMP/E APPLY will not find it and will end with the error :

IEW2763S DE07 FILE ASSOCIATED WITH DDNAME HWMCADLL CANNOT BE OPENED BECAUSE THE FILE DOES NOT EXIST OR CANNOT BE
CREATED.
