Error description

  • For a SMS library allocation, the following error msg can be
    issued:
      IEF120I ALLOCATION FAILED - A NON-LIBRARY REQUEST SPECIFIED
              A LIBRARY DEVICE
    The UCB for the device indicate a SMS library device.
    The problem occur for file allocated with a sequences >1 and
    on rel. z/OS 2.1
    

Local fix

  • Make changes to the ACS routines for file sequences >1,
    to assign a storage class.

    SUMMARY: PRIOR TO HDZ2210, SMS HANDLED A NEW ALLOCATION OF A
    TAPE DATA SET WITH FILE SEQUENCE GREATER THAN 1 INTO THE SAME
    TAPE LIBRARY AS THE FILE SEQUENCE 1 DATA SET GOT ALLOCATED. IN
    HDZ2210, IN ORDER TO LET USERS ACCESS A TAPE OUTSIDE OF AN
    AUTOMATED TAPE LIBRARY FOR OUTPUT IF THE SPECIFIED VOLUME IS THE
    SAME WITH THE ONE IN SYSTEM-MANAGED LIBRARY, SMS REQUIRED A
    STORAGE CLASS TO BE SPECIFIED TO DISTINGUISH BETWEEN
    SYSTEM-MANAGED TAPE VOLSERS AND NON-SYSTEM MANAGED ONES. WITHOUT
    A STORAGE CLASS SPECIFIED, THE NEW ALLOCATION OF A TAPE DATA SET
    WITH FILE SEQUENCE GREATER THAN 1 MIGHT GO TO NON-SYSTEM MANAGED
    LIBRARY AND THE MESSAGE IEF120I AS DESCRIBED IN ERROR
    DESCRIPTION MIGHT OCCUR.
    

Problem conclusion

  • THIS APAR WILL PUT BACK THE FUNCTION PRIOR TO HDZ2210 TO LET THE
    NEW ALLOCATION OF A TAPE DATA SET WITH FILE SEQUENCE GREATER
    THAN 1 GO INTO THE SAME TAPE LIBRARY WITH THE FILE SEQUENCE 1
    DATA SET WITHOUT SPECIFYING A STORAGE CLASS.
    
    THIS FIX ALSO PROVIDES AN ENHANCED SOLUTION TO USE THE SPECIAL
    STORAGE CLASS DUPT@SMS AS A REQUIREMENT TO ACCESS A TAPE OUTSIDE
    A SYSTEM-MANANGE LIBRARY. THIS NEWLY SOLUTION IS AS DESCRIBED
    BELOW:
    
    WITH STORCLASS=DUPT@SMS AND DISP=NEW (FILE SEQUENCE > 1) AND
    VOL=SER=NNNNNN SPECIFIED IN THE JCL, USERS CAN ACCESS A TAPE
    OUTSIDE OF AN AUTOMATED TAPE LIBRARY FOR OUTPUT IF THEY HAVE
    ANOTHER TAPE WITH THE SAME VOLSER IN A SYSTEM-MANAGED LIBRARY.
    SPECIFICATION OF DUPT@SMS INDICATES THAT THE DISP=NEW REQUEST IS
    TO BE NON-SYSTEM MANAGED. THIS WILL DIRECT THE ALLOCATION OF THE
    DUPLICATE VOLUME TO A STAND-ALONE DEVICE. FOR DISP=NEW
    (FILE SEQUENCE 1), THE ASSIGNMENT OF A STORAGE CLASS WHEN THE
    AUTOMATIC CLASS SELECTION (ACS) ROUTINES ARE RUN CONTINUES TO
    DETERMINE IF THE INITIAL REQUEST IS SYSTEM-MANAGED.
    
    THIS APAR WILL UPDATE THE FOLLOWING MANUALS:
    
    1. z/OS V2R1 DFSMS OAM Planning, Installation, and Storage
       Administration Guide for Tape Libraries
    2. z/OS V2R1.0 DFSMSdfp Storage Administration
