Issue:
When trying to deallocate an RLS VSAM file from CICS using DADS Plus CICS the client receives error message FILE I-O ERR in the current status field. The DADSLOG contains message
'DADSGRF ' READ ERROR, COND=FILENOTFOUND,RESP2=0001.   
 
Environment:
Z/OS
CICS
 
Cause:
On the DADS Plus online deallocation panel the user did not enter OPTIONS N   (OPTIONS ===> N )
Options
RLS:  I - IMMQUIESCE
        N - DON'T PROPAGATE 
If option is left blank RLS propagation is used and the DADSGRF file is required.
Resolution:
The client needs to set the option to OPTIONS ===> N. No propagation will be done and DADS Plus will not require the DADSGRF file. The RLS file will only be deallocated in the local region.
