An IBM load utility fails with a return code 8 and the following error:
BPA0114E: RETAIN PROCESSING NOT DONE, NO DSAB FOUND MATCHING DDNAME PTILOAD.
A workaround is to remove the RETAIN from the LOAD utility. The unload dataset was created as a DASD dataset and the load is trying to treat it as a tape dataset when it was not, which is why removing the RETAIN gets past the problem.
The symbolic variable %LARGE, which is used in both the UNLOAD and the LOAD to determine if the unload dataset is a tape dataset or DASD dataset, was not set the same in both utilities which causes this problem.
When the value for the user symbol %LARGE in unload utility is different from the LOAD utility, message RMA670W will be issued for R11 and RMA740 for r115 during analysis. This will give you the opportunity to correct the problem before execution.
