Error Message :

The RestartPlus Run Time Module has the feature to delete existing datasets in production run, in case they exists already and the parameter disposition is set to “new” in the JCL.

The only affected datasets are those residing on “Extended Address Volumes” or EAV (The feature works as expected for datasets not residing on EAV).
The Run Time Module logs that the datasets were deleted, which is incorrect: They are only uncatalogued.

Jobs do not run as expected. Instead they fail with a JCL error.

Cause type:
Root Cause: Restart Plus Runtime Module fails to delete datasets residing on extended address volumes, which could not be located.
Update to a fix version listed below or a newer version if available.

Fix Status: Released

Fix Version(s):
Restart Plus 1.2P - available
Additional Information:
Workaround :
Initially manually deleting the datasets.
