Issue: 

Submitted sharedprefix.MICS.CNTL(MICSLS1) job in checklist to upgrade SAS. The job abends with U999 – and error message “ERROR: Physical file does not exist, sharedprefix.MICS.TEMPPARM”.                   

Environment:  

All CA MICS and SAS levels.

Cause: 

SAS discovered that this 'Physical file does not exist' error seems to only occur when TEMPPARM is allocated to a non-SMS data set.

 Resolution:

1. Add SMS information to the allocation. For example, add STORCLAS=xxxx

OR

 

2. Allocate the dataset before you submit the job and change the JCL in the MICSLS1 job to point to the dataset as DISP=OLD.   Delete the dataset after the job completes successfully.
