Resolution:

The incorrect DSNAMExx was the cause for this error. After going back  to square 1 and started the post installation process, user found that there were multiple R17 parmlib(s) set up with various members. She was  able to track the 'correct' DSNAMEE1 and successfully built the jobs for the upgrade. Pointing to the correct DSNAMExx member resolved the problem.
