If CSM (Chorus Software Manager) is used to install the first incremental release of Endevor V17, the application of APAR RO70908 - NAME MASKING SUPPORT FOR ENVIRONMENT ON BUILD SCL STMT may fail with the error:
GIM69102E ** ALLOCATION FAILED FOR SMPTLOAD BECAUSE THERE IS NO DDDEF ENTRY FOR SMPTLOAD IN TARGET ZONE CAIT0.
To resolve this error you must run the following JCL to add the SMPTLOAD DDDEF to your CA Endevor v17 CSI -
//STEP1 EXEC PGM=GIMSMP,PARM='DATE=U',REGION=0M
//SMPCSI DD DISP=SHR,DSN=YOUR.v17.CSI
//SMPCNTL DD *
ADD DDDEF (SMPTLOAD) UNIT(SYSDA) CYL SPACE(300,100) DIR(800) .
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your local CA Endevor Support Team.
I downloaded Endevor R17 via CSM some weeks ago, did not yet have GIM69102E-troubles.
Would you recommend CSM-users to update the CSI in either case in that way you described, or will CA provide an official/additional solution?
A missing DDDEF could provoke errors also when applying other future software-service.
Thanks and kind regards, Josef
If you already installed and applied the RO70908 as mentioned above without error then you should be fine. However, customers who have installed Endevor v17 with CSM could simply run the JCL provided to ensure that the SMPTLOAD is defined or you can simply look at you CSI to see if the DDDEF is defined. This problem will be resolved in the next release of v17.
