JRSAFNoGID: The user ID is in a group that has no GID 
Action: Create an OMVS segment and assign a GID to the group.
Resolution:
List the region logon and locate the GROUP value. 
Then list the group profile as follows. 

ACF 
SET PROFILE(GROUP) DIV(OMVS) 
LIST group 
END 

You should not find a profile ... This means you will need to create a new OMVS profile 
or allocate a different GROUP to the logonid. 
To allocate a different profile.. 
ACF 
CHANGE logonid GROUP(new_group) 
END 

to add a GROUP profile for the existing group ... 
ACF 
SET PROFILE(GROUP) DIV(OMVS) 
INSERT group GID(ggg) 
F ACF2,REBUILD(GRP),CLASS(P) 
END
