Error description

  • The customer specified DISP=(,CATLG,UNCATLG) in his JCL for a
    batch job step creating a new tape data set.  There was already
    an existing tape data set with the same name in the catalog.
    This job was cancelled and allocation honored the UNCATLG parm
    during disposition processing, uncataloging the previously
    existing data set.
       This is inconsistent with DELETE processing, which does not
    UNCATALOG the existing entry.  DELETE code checks if we are
    doing a delete of a tape data set and then checks JFCCAT to see
    if we got the information from the catalog.  This protects us
    from uncataloging a data set that we did not get from the
    catalog.
       This APAR is being taken to request that Allocation perform
    checks for UNCATLG as it does for DELETE, rather than having
    UNCATLG simply uncatalog the data set as requested on the JCL
    card.
    

Local fix

  • use DISP=(,CATLG,DELETE) instead of DISP=(,CATLG,UNCATLG)
