Problem: 

 Error F2028 - Name not processed, name=dsn.name.file rc=8 during a LOAD

Cause:

There are 2 possible causes.
1. The DSN is not on backup copy on tape or disk
2. The tape is positioned past the location of the DSN

 

Resolution:

Verify that the name is on the backup tape or disk and it is in the catalog you pointed to in the JCL

// EXEC FAVER2
MAP DEFINE    
/*

If using a backup tape and attempting to LOAD multiple DSNs. The DNS's are stored in alphabetical order on the tape so it is possible the tape is past the dsn you are trying to LOAD


Example
LOAD CATALOG(ABC123.USER.CAT) -                          
     DSN(ABC.321.DATA.DAT -                  
         CLUSTER (VOL(ABC016) CATALOG(ABC123.USER.CAT))) 
LOAD CATALOG(ABC123.USER.CAT) -                          
     DSN(ABC.123.DATA.DAT -                  
       CLUSTER (VOL(ABC016) CATALOG(ABC123.USER.CAT)))  

The tape will already be positioned at ABC.321.DATA.DAT, FAVER will not find ABC.123.DATA.DAT.

To avoid this, use one LOAD statement with multiple DSNs

LOAD CATALOG(ABC123.USER.CAT) -                          
     DSN(ABC.321.DATA.DAT -                   
        CLUSTER (VOL(ABC016) CATALOG(ABC123.USER.CAT)))   
         ABC.123.DATA.DAT -                   
        CLUSTER (VOL(ABC016) CATALOG(ABC123.USER.CAT))))
