Issue:
Executing SSM3STUP clist to configure required AOF rules. Allocation failing with following error message:
alloc = 4 OPS9533E DYNALLOC FAILED, VERB=ALLOCATE RC=4 ERRCD=X'1708' INFCD=X'0002' DDN=NE WRUL DSN=prefix.SSMV3.RULES
Clist submitted with "OI SSM3STUP CAI.OPS1350" verbiage from TSO prompt. SMP/E target data set name prefix is "CAI.OPS135"
 
Resolution:
There is a way to avoid the pre-allocation of a ruleset. You can pass the arguments UNIT and VOLUME in the call of this program.
For example:

OI SSM3STUP CAI.OPS135 UNIT(3390) VOLUME(vvvvvv)

where vvvvvv is the volume serial of the disk where you want the SSMV3 ruleset allocated.
CAI.OPS135 is the high level qualifier of the CA OPS target libraries. The REXX program looks for a target library named CAI.OPS135.CCLXRULM in this example.
