Question:

We are seeing some messages that look like RACF is preventing a volume add:
IEC070I 209-220...
INSUFFICIENT ACCESS AUTHORITY
FROM TSHROL.** (G)
ACCESS INTENT(ALTER ) ACCESS ALLOWED(CONTROL)
V37307E ALTER ADDVOLUMES FAILED, RC=X'00000038'             
The EOV_VSAM routines attempted to process the data set and were unable to perform the necessary ALTER ADDVOLUMES.
Could you tell me why VAM was failed in VSAM extend or is it really RACF issue.

Answer:
The fix for this problem is to add to Vkgparms: PLSOPT45 (Y)
This will override data set access authority that would prevent EOV support for a VSAM data set.
After adding the Vkgparm, then do this command...
F VAM,PARMREF
