Introduction:

Understanding when FMP for IMS creates a new member in the DOPT ACBLIB.

 

 

Question:

Can you give us a better understanding when FMP for IMS creates a new member in the DOPT ACBLIB?

We would like to better understand when the FMP for IMS creates a new member in the DOPT ACBLIB. The intention is to try avoiding the DFS3488 ERROR DURING ENQUEUE FOR DDNAME 

 

Environment:
IMS
Answer:

FMIMS builds an ACB when a user does not indicate a 'PSB or ACB' name in the Browse/Edit entry panel for a BMP environment.  

The ACB is named like CAWK#nnn where nnn is in the range 000-999. When installing the product you were requested to add these names to your IMSGEN.  

Along with the CAWK#nnn ACB 'DBD's are also generated in the DOTP Library. I use quotes because these are not really DBDs but by the name your might think these are DBDs. 

 

 

Additional Information:

FMIMS never builds an ACB under another name, and does not create the ACB if user enters a name in the 'PSB or ACB' field. if so the ACB is searched in the ACBLIB concatenation for this environment and if not found message CAWK605E '*ACB Member Not Found* is returned.
