Question

IDC3351I ** VSAM I/O RETURN CODE IS 108 - RPLFDBWD = X'8F08046C
received when running a IDCAMS repro:REPRO INFILE(IN1),OUTFILE(OUT1).

Cause

MAXLRECL on one of the AIXs is too small.

Answer

Since this is a KSDS with Alternate Indices,
the RPL feedback word value of 8F08046C is indicating -
RECLEN was not sufficient to contain the new
alternate index key pointer. With non-unique
UPGRADE AIX's, the record is automatically
increased in size each time a record is added
to the base cluster and this can cause an
incorrect RECLEN. Make sure the maximum
RECORDSIZE on the alternate index is large
enough for all base pointers it must contain.

EXAMPLE:

FSVG.FBSI.FBCOWV21 has 2 AIXs.

The first is FSVG.FBSI.FBCOWV21.AIX02 with a MAXLRECL = 31914
which will allow approximately 2900 base cluster records to have
the same AIX key value.

The second AIX, FSVG.FBSI.FBCOWV21.AIX03 with a MAXLRECL = 1116
will allow approximately 100 base cluster records to have
the same AIX key value.

The RPLFDBWD 8F08046C is telling us that a PUT to the base cluster will
cause an upgrade to one of the AIXs which will cause the AIX record to
exceed its maximum specified record size (probably to AIX03).
