IST1288I TOPOLOGY DATASET RETRIEVAL WAS NOT SUCCESSFUL, CODE = 2

Technote (troubleshooting)


Problem(Abstract)

At IPL time, the z/OS system issues the following messages:

IEC130I TRSDB DD STATEMENT MISSING
IST1288I TOPOLOGY DATASET RETRIEVAL WAS NOT SUCCESSFUL, CODE = 2
IEC130I DSDBCTRL DD STATEMENT MISSING
IEC130I DSDB1 DD STATEMENT MISSING
IEC130I DSDB2 DD STATEMENT MISSING

Symptom

For z/VM the equivalent messages issued are:

GCTSOP308W OPEN error '23' on 'TRSDB'
IST1288I TOPOLOGY DATASET RETRIEVAL WAS NOT SUCCESSFUL, CODE = 2
GCTSOP308W OPEN error '23' on 'DSDBCTRL'
GCTSOP308W OPEN error '12' on 'DSDBCTRL'
GCTSOP308W OPEN error '23' on 'DSDB1'
GCTSOP308W OPEN error '23' on 'DSDB2'

Message IST1288I may be issued on a z/VSE system as well.


Diagnosing the problem


The first IEC130I message, together with the Code 2 on IST1288I, indicates that the TRSDB dataset, which is the APPN network topology database, is not defined. In addition, the remaining IEC130I messages indicate that the APPN directory services checkpointing datasets - DSDB1, DSDB2, and DSDBCTRL - are also not defined.

The messages issued indicate that you have not prepared the required APPN checkpointing datasets. When initializing VTAM as an APPN network node, these messages are issued if INITDB=ALL was specified as a VTAM start option or if you took the default value of ALL for the INITDB start option.


Resolving the problem

To use the APPN checkpointing datasets, follow the instructions for your operating system for defining them:


If, however, you prefer not to use the APPN checkpointing datasets, specify INITDB=NONE as an option in your VTAM start option list.
