Error description

  • Rational Developer for System z (RDz)  displays an error in the
    LPEX editor when JCL has an allocate for a dataset that
    specifies a primary space allocation of zero.  The JCL when
    submitted, however, does not get any errors.
    
    This problem can be easily recreated by editing the following
    JCL in RDz LPEX editor:
    //COBOL.SYSPRINT DD DISP=(NEW,DELETE,DELETE),
    //        DCB=(RECFM=FB,LRECL=80,BLKSIZE=7920,DSORG=PS),
    //        SPACE=(80,(0,5)),UNIT=SYSALLDA,AVGREC=K
    
    In the Space primary quantity the value is zero, and causes the
    error of
    'incorrect primary space size'.
    
    However, in the zOS v1.11 Information Center:
    http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/zos/v1r11/index.jsp?top
    ic=/com.ibm.zos.r11.ieab600/xddspace.htm
    
    It states that zero for primary quantity is valid.  Here is the
    info from the above topic:
    primary-qty
    Syntax allows for values of 0-16777215. Actual allowances will
    vary depending on physical and other environmental variables.
