Description:

A permit for the dataset with .* as the last parameter and ACCESS(ALL) is common to include all generations of the GDG.

EXAMPLE:
TSS PERMIT(user) DSN(GDGDSN.UPDATE.ERR.*) ACCESS(ALL)

The user may then receive:
TSS7227E UPDATE Access Not Granted to Dataset GDGDSN.UPDATE.ERR

Solution:

The dataset in the TSS7227E message is the base GDG. The next generation of the GDG was successfully created. After the successful creation a second call is made to UPDATE the base GDG with the newly created generation. It is this call that fails. The GDG base does not include the .* so therefore the permit for ACCESS(ALL) to DSN(GDGDSN.UPDATE.ERR.*) does not match.

A permit for ACCESS(UPDATE) is needed to the base GDG.

In the example the dataset would be: DSN(GDGDSN.UPDATE.ERR)

If you want to make sure that GDGDSN.UPDATE.ERR is not used as a high level qualifier then the dataset could be in quotes on the permit.

EXAMPLE:
TSS PERMIT(user) DSN('GDGDSN.UPDATE.ERR') ACCESS(UPDATE)
