Is there any option?

Resolution

You can use WRKFLS=NO and restart the TMSINIT.

Use the WRKFLS parameter to determines whether work files may be created.
A work file is either a temporary data set, or a data set created with an expiration date
the same as the current date, or a retention period of zero.

The CTAPOPTN(TMOOPTxx) WRKFLS parameter has the following options:
YES:(Default) Work files are allowed to be created, and are eligible for reuse as a scratch tape immediately.
NO :One day is added to the expiration date, and the tape may not be used in a subsequent output request until
    it is processed by TMSCLEAN. NO in the system options member TMOOPTxx in hlq.CTAPOPTN activates this option.
