Description:

CA 11 detects dynamically allocated data sets and adds them to it's database.
These data sets are maintained the same as the data sets that are allocated in the JCL.

Solution:

This option may be used by customers who have the need to introduce new datasets after the RMS step runs. Customers should not set DYNCLEAN=YES as a global option.
If you change DYNCLEAN from YES to NO, all job that had dynamically allocated that ran while the DYNCLEAN=YES will need to go through 'F' processing on their next run.
If the attempt is forced without changing the next CMT run to 'F' processing, the job log will produce a U11-118, indicating:

DYNCLEAN=NO NOT ALLOWED; DYNAMICALLY CREATED DD RECORDS EXIST; MANUAL FORMAT REQUIRED

You must then determine whether to perform cleanup of the dynamically allocated data sets for your job(s) and whether to track creation of dynamically allocateddata sets for this job. If so, consider running the job with DYNCLEAN=YES. If not, manual intervention is required. Manual intervention can include performing manualcleanup of the data sets listed in subsequent U11-119 messages, manually deleting the CMT member, running the RMS step with "F" (format) processing, or acombination of these actions.
