Error description

  • Receive the following message running the "SECMIGR
    OPS2RACF,DSIPARM,DSIOPF,SAFDEF" command containing a fully
    qualified file name greater than 43 characters:
    
    BNH134E THE OUTPUT MEMBER SELECTED COULD NOT BE WRITTEN TO OR
    CLOSED
    
    When we browsed the SECOPERS member in the DSILIST PDS, it only
    contained the banner page, no control cards. We also noticed
    that the date was truncated on the line where the DSILIST data
    set was mentioned.

Problem summary

    * USERS AFFECTED: All Tivoli NetView for z/OS users of the     *

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: When an optional output file name that  *
    *                      is more than 43 characters long         *
    *                      (including the member name and its      *
    *                      enclosing parentheses) is specified on  *
    *                      a SECMIGR command invocation, the       *
    *                      following msgBNH134E is issued:         *
    *                      BNH134E THE OUTPUT MEMBER SELECTED      *
    *                        COULD NOT BE WRITTEN TO OR CLOSED     *
    *                      Contrary to the message the output      *
    *                      header JCL records are written to the   *
    *                      file with one or two records truncated  *
    *                      but with no data records.               *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    CNME8004 dynamically creates the output records written to the
    output file but it does not check to ensure the records are no
    more than 80 columns wide and they are not formatted such that
    checking is unnecessary. When CNME8004 attempts to write records
    wider than 80 columns, the EXECIO command used to write the
    records encounters an error and returns a bad return code.
    CNME8004 checks the return code and if it is bad, issues the
    reported error message. The data for that EXECIO request is
    still written to the output file but records over 80 colunms
    wide are truncated. Subsequent EXECIO commands are not executed.
    

Problem conclusion

  • CNME8004 is being changed to format the output JCL header
    records such that none of these records will exceed 80
    characters unless the maximum data set name allowed by z/OS
    exceeds 44 characters.
    Commas were found to be missing in the command help for SECMIGR.
    Changes to the SECMIGR command syntax should be made in the
    IBM Tivoli NetView for z/OS Command Reference Volume 2 (O - Z)
    Version 6 Release 1 (SC27-2848-01) under the SECMIGR command
    description, in the SECMIGR command syntax diagram as follows:
    Change the syntax diagram for each of the SECMIGR option syntax
    diagrams (i.e. Ops2Racf, Spn2Racf, Scp2Tbl, Tbl2Racf, Scp2Racf,
    Spn2Tbl) to include a comma after the option name. For example:
                     .-DSIPARM-.
    |-- OPS2RACF--,--+---------+--,--
                     '-oper_dd-'
    The online command help is being changed to reflect the above
    publication changes.
