DFHFC0972 Non-RLS OPEN of file failed

Technote (troubleshooting)


Problem(Abstract)

You are recieving DFHFC0972 when trying to OPEN or ENABLE a file after defining the file using resource definition online (RDO).

Symptom

DFHFC0972 Non-RLS OPEN of file filename failed. VSAM catalog entry not found, return code - 8111 X'0020' in module DFHFCFS.

You also noticed the dataset was changing names when viewing the files. The file was defined as physical sequential in the startup JCL.


Cause

You have a DD Card in the JCL and that over-rides the RDO definition.

Resolving the problem

Remove the JCL override in the startup up JCL.
