  • 1.  Message XCOMM0705E when using NEWXFER in XCOM-transfers

    Posted 06-08-2017 05:37 AM

    When you get error message XCOMM0705E when executing a XCOM Job which does several transfer using NEWXFER then check these parameters. Likely you specified two or more of these mutually exclusive parameters GROUP, IPNAME, LIST and LU.

     

    Here is an example. You transfer one Dataset to another mainframe and then to a Unix-Server:

    //SYSIN01   DD  *
    TYPE=SEND
    FILETYPE=FILE
    FILEOPT=REPLACE
    LU=XCOMABC
    LFILE=AAA.BBB.SOURCE
    FILE=CCC.DDD.DEST
    CODE=EBCDIC
    USERID=<user>
    PASSWORD=<password>
    TRUNCATE=YES
    SECURE_SOCKET=NO
    *------
    NEWXFER
    *------
    IPNAME=121.122.123.124
    IPPORT=8044
    LFILE=AAA.BBB.SOURCE  
    FILE=\xcom\backup\ccc-ddd-dest.txt
    /*

    Parameter NEWXFER allows you to only specify the changed parameters, the others are used with their old values. And here is the reason for the error: You specified IPNAME=... but the LU=... from the first transfer still is valid!

    The Solution is to use the SYSIN01 as above but additionally specify LU= for the second transfer to remove that parameter:

    //SYSIN01   DD  *
    TYPE=SEND
    FILETYPE=FILE
    FILEOPT=REPLACE
    LU=XCOMABC
    LFILE=AAA.BBB.SOURCE
    FILE=CCC.DDD.DEST
    CODE=EBCDIC
    USERID=<user>
    PASSWORD=<password>
    TRUNCATE=YES
    SECURE_SOCKET=NO
    *------
    NEWXFER
    *------
    LU=
    IPNAME=121.122.123.124
    IPPORT=8044
    LFILE=AAA.BBB.SOURCE  
    FILE=\xcom\backup\ccc-ddd-dest.txt
