Introduction:
How to restore a data set when we get such error:
 
ADSDM069 3326 THIS MULTI-VOLUME NON-VSAM DATA SET, DSN=MBPERM.EX.SEQ.UNLO.TBMES.SORT
ADSDM069 3326 BL0277* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *                      
ADSDM068 2796 CRITICAL ERROR WHILE READING ARCHIVE TAPE                        
ADSDM068 9999 SPLIT RECORD MISSING IN NEXT ARCHIVE BLOCK                       
ADSDM068 9999 FILENO= 1; BLOCK= 1,181,355                                      
ADSDM068 2796 CRITICAL ERROR WHILE READING ARCHIVE TAPE                        
ADSDM077*0450 MBPERM.EX.SEQ.UNLO.TBMES.SORT                WAS NOT RESTORED DUE
Instructions:
First verify that the ARCHVOL is correctly cataloged and is not a multi-volume.
Run a LISTD and LISTV to verify this point first.
Then run an ARCHDUMP report which should show that for the data set all the blocks appear to be there and in order. If not, the data is lost.

We recommend you to try the Archive Fix utility with the COPY ALL command.
See this link: https://docops.ca.com/ca-disk-backup-and-restore/12-5/en/systems/problem-analysis-aids/diagnostic-tools/recovery-utilities/archive-fix-utility
 
Then this data set can be rebuilt into a Files data set, see this link: https://docops.ca.com/ca-disk-backup-and-restore/12-5/en/using/files-maintenance/archive-index-rebuild-utility
Then the data set can be restored and needs to be validated by you.

We cannot guarantee all the data is there as the EOF record is missing but as we will add the EOF with the COPY ALL probably the data will be good and usable.
