Error description

  • PMR 38890,632,760 - BLKSIZE specified for output DD in the JCL
    not effective.
    
    ================================================================
    Date reported: 10/12/2012
    
    Severity: High
    
    Users Affected:
     All IMU users of MU V3.2
    
    Problem Description:
     BLKSIZE specified in the JCL for output tape files is not
     recognized.
    
    Problem Summation
     This problem occurs for output tape files when the BLKSIZE
     generated in the program is zero, or the BLKSIZE=NATIVE
     EZPARAMS option was specified.  The problem was introduced by
     the implementation of the Long Block Interface (LBI) feature.
    
     The problem occurs when the BLKSIZE coded in the JCL for tape
     files that support LBI is less than 32K.
    
    Problem Conclusion:
     The FSDYNIO0 module was changed to extract the BLKSIZE from the
     BLKSIZE coded in the JCL when the block size generated in the
     program is zero.
    
    Changed modules in FSOFT01.V3R2M0.SFSYLOAD
     FSDYNIO0 - existing module
    
    Special note:
     FSDYNIO0 is a run-time module. Re-compiling of programs is not
     required.
