Symptoms:

Trying to own DSN(A) fails and so does DSN(A*).

Example:

 TSS ADD(acid) DSN(A) 
 TSS0214E  INVALID DATASET NAME/PREFIX                              
 TSS0301I  ADD      FUNCTION FAILED, RETURN CODE =  4  

or

 TSS ADD(acid) DSN(A*)                                        
 TSS0214E  INVALID DATASET NAME/PREFIX                          
 TSS0301I  ADD      FUNCTION FAILED, RETURN CODE =  4  

Resolution:

For resource classes that support masking, any ADD command must specify:

  • A minimum of 2 characters

  • Any ADD command that contains a masking character must start with a masking character

  • No resource name that starts with a non-masking character can contain a masking character in the 2nd position.
