Problem:

When copying a Tablespace the job fails with error message PQC0239E:

PQC0293I THE VSAM DATA SET DOES NOT EXIST FOR TABLESPACE dbname.tsname
PQC0239E NO OBJECTS PASSED FILTERING - IMAGE COPY UTILITY TERMINATING

The job terminates with a Return Code 16.

Is it possible to allow processing to continue rather than the job fail?

Cause:

The Tablespace has been defined with 'DEFINE NO'.

Solution:

The Return Code 16 is generated as a result of the setting for parameter RC-NO-OBJECTS-SELECTED in the UTIL PARMLIB member.

RC-NO-OBJECTS-SELECTED (0016) /* RC WHEN NO OBJECTS FOUND IN CATALOG */

To allow processing to continue, amend the RC-NO-OBJECTS-SELECTED parameter in your UTIL PARMLIB member to set a different Return Code. If you set this parameter to (0004) and no objects are to be copied, then the next utility statement is processed.

If a value greater than 4 is coded then no other statements in the step are processed.
