News


Abstract

Error "IEB106I UNEQUAL PARENTHESIS IEB118I CONTROL STATEMENT ERROR" is encountered in any PARMGEN or ICAT configuration jobs that include IEBCOPY-related steps.

Content

This problem is occurring on z/OS 1.11, 1.12, 1.13 after application of PTFs: UA63214, UA63213, UA63212, respectively.

  • List of product configuration jobs that will encounter the "IEB106I UNEQUAL PARENTHESIS IEB118I CONTROL STATEMENT ERROR" if you have the DFSMS PTF applied:
A. **PARMGEN composite jobs: If you are using PARMGEN configuration mode for your RTEs:
  1. KCIJPCFG - Set up PARMGEN work environment for an RTE
  2. KCIJPUP1 - Update interim libraries and create RTE LPAR and global profiles
  3. $PARSE/$PARSESV - Create the RTE members and jobs
  4. KCIJPLOD - Load TK*->RK* runtime libraries
  5. KCIJPSEC - Product security
  6. KCIJPSYS - System set-up
  7. KCIJPCPY - Backup IK*,WK* or RK* user lib.
  8. KCIJPW2R - WK*->RK* deployment

**Please refer to the master PARMGEN Technote for more information about PARMGEN alternative mode of configuring the OMEGAMON/ITM products on z/OS (URL: http://www.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21417935 )

B. Product-specific ICAT jobs: If you are using ICAT Batch or ICAT interactive configuration mode for your RTEs:
  1. pp#3xxxx - Product-specific "Create runtime members" job (one pp job X # of pp components configured in the RTE where eligible pp = AH CB C2 C5 DF DO DS D2 D4 D5 GW HL I2 I5 MC MQ MV M2 NA N3 OB ON QI RG RH RJ RK RN RV RW WO YN)
  2. pp#Oxxxx - Product-specific "Modify Classic command security" job (one pp job X # of pp components configured in the RTE where eligible pp= C2, D2, I2, M2)
  3. pp#4xxxx - Product-specific "Register with local TEMS" job (one pp job X # of pp components configured in the RTE where eligible pp = AH C5 DF DO D4 D5 GW HL I5 MC MQ M2 M5 NA N3 QI RG RH RJ RK RN RV RW S3 T1 YN)
  4. pp#Ixxxx - Product-specific "Install Agent into local TEMS" job (one pp job X # of pp components configured in the RTE where eligible pp= C5 DO D5 GW HL I5 MC MQ M5 N3 RG RH RJ RK RN RV RW S3)
  5. pp#2xxxx - Product-specific RTE Load job (one pp job X # of pp components configured in the RTE where eligible pp = AH CB C5 DO DS D4 D5 GW HL I5 NA N3 QI RG RH RJ RK RN RV RW S3 T1 WO YN)
  6. CB#Nxxxx - Create KCISYNJB Copy VTAM Node to system VTAMLST job
  7. CB#Pxxxx - Create KCISYPJB Copy STC job to system PROCLIB job

Please refer to Appendix E of the "IBM Tivoli® OMEGAMON XE and Tivoli Management Services on z/OS Common Planning and Configuration Guide" for a description of the pp component codes and their corresponding product names. The publication is available in the ITM/OMEGAMON Infocenter: http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/tivihelp/v15r1

Caution:
Please review the offending job that encountered the IEBCOPY error.

In certain cases, the "IEB106I UNEQUAL PARENTHESIS IEB118I CONTROL STATEMENT ERROR" messages are benign and although the member(s) got copied, the job still reports a RC=08. In other cases, the members do not get copied. It will vary on the COPY INDD/OUTDD/SELECT statement combination. For example, the COPY step below results in KOMSUPDI member to not get copied to the output dataset.
//SYSIN DD *
COPY INDD=(RKANPAR,TKANPAR),OUTDD=RKANPARU
SELECT MEMBER=KOMSUPDI
/*

In other cases, a COPY step like below does copy the KCICSV0 sample member, but the COMPRESS ("COPY INDD=RKANCMD,OUTDD=RKANCMD") is bypassed by IEBCOPY (thus potential ABEND E37 space issues if multiple IEBCOPY steps are done to the output library):
//SYSIN DD *
COPY INDD=((TKANCMD,R)),OUTDD=RKANCMD
SELECT MEMBER=((KCIRSV0,,R))
COPY INDD=RKANCMD,OUTDD=RKANCMD
/*

Solution:
OA39176 is the culprit. PTF UA64642 is the fixing PTF but its still open at this time.

For now, you should subscribe to APAR OA39176, The fixing PTF should be listed under this APAR.
