RCALPROC is not called with CA XCOM Data Transport r12.0 for archived data sets.

Issue:

I created an XCOMRCAL proc and put it in proclib, and changed the RCALPROC to XCOMRCAL, recycled XCOM, then scheduled a transfer of an archived tape, but XCOM sat and waited for the DSN to be restored from tape, it did not call the XCOMRCAL proc. This used to work.

Cause:

The RCALPROC feature is not working because a call to SHOWCAT is recalling  the data set before RCALPROC processing can take place. Apparently IBM modified both the SHOWCAT and LOCATE operations to recall archived datasets and the XCOM RCALPROC feature no longer works.

Resolution:

Apply RCALPROC SUBMITTED IN ERROR FOR ALL GDG TRANSFERS for XCOM for z/OS 12.0.
