When running a CA Datacom/DB or CA Datacom/AD Multi-User Facility (called MUF), a set of execution options is provided via SYSIN at startup. These options control many different functions within the MUF, and there are a number of options that control processing in combination with other options.
When the same option is specified twice, the parameters on the duplicated option might be different, or they might conflict with other options already processed, and so the MUF sends this error to identify this situation.
For example, you might see this set of errors in the listing of MUF Startup Options:
. . .
DB01900I - SYSOUT L,5M,1M,3M,1M,1M CLASS,ML,CBS,SQL,DD,DST
DB01909E - * - ASTERISK POINTS NEAR ERROR
DB01914E - DUPLICATE STATEMENT RECEIVED
. . .
DB00216E - ERROR IN SYSIN/SYSIPT DATA
The DB00216E error is a general error, and indicates that there is a problem in the MUF Startup Options that prevents the MUF from starting. In this case, the DB01909E error points out the option that is a problem, and the DB01914E error identifies the problem: here, the SYSOUT statement was already processed earlier in the SYSIN.
