ACOP041I error on session restart from remote side when DISP=MOD is used in a process copy step.

Technote (troubleshooting)


Situation where a Connect:Direct z/OS system starts a session to Connect:Direct i5/OS:
On first copy attempt the mainframe is getting a SDE0210I allocation error because the destination file on i5/OS is locked.
Error SDE0210I will be handled on mainframe side as retryable
according to the in the initparms.

On a retry of this process during session initiation a restart flag will be forwarded.

In the copy step this restart flag will cause the i5/OS side to deny
such a a copy when DISP=MOD is used with error ACOP041I.

Reason: existing data in the destination file may get lost!

There would be no such a problem for a restart of a copy step where DISP=RPL or DISP=SHR was coded.

When mainframe will get back error ACOP041I the process will be set to hold.
Such a process can't be released again, because still the restart flag will be used.

The process must be submitted again to get this working.

Doing a view process in the process queue on mainframe side should show you how the failing process was coded.
These information then can be used to submit a new process.

This is working as designed.
