Issue:

Job worked great but when I tried against a second TPX (on another LPAR), I got this message and am not sure if there just was no data to satisfy request or if I have a real error.

I see one message refers to VIEW and that function is not enabled so there is no VIEW DD statement.

TPBL0706 LSERV request failed. Request: CONNECT 
                  LSERV Subsystem Name: LSRV DDNAME: N/A 
                  Return Code = 00000044 ACBERFLG = N/A RPLFDBWD = N/A 

followed by message:

TPB601 UNABLE TO OPEN COMMUNICATION WITH LSERV FILE SERVER. REQUIRED FOR FILE VIEW

Environment:
TPX 5.4
Cause:

When TPX does not find a DD statement for any of the VSAM files (ADMIN1, ADMIN2, MAIL, NOTES, VIEW), it assumes that you are using CA LSERV to manage access to those files.

Resolution:

If you are not using VIEW then you should have a //VIEW DD DUMMY in your TPX procedure. Otherwise you will get this message. You would also receive this message when starting TPX online.

DO NOT comment out the DD statement; use DD DUMMY instead.

This message does not influence the functionality of TPX.
