Trying to use the CAUNZIP utility to process a newly downloaded SCART0.zip file. The batch job ends RC=12 with the following error message observed:

CAZIP04E: Dynamic Allocation of IPTF path Failed RC=12



We have maintenance for this problem applied already see CAIRIM R14.1 PTF RO91948.  The CAUNZIP messages reflect that this PTF is in effect:

vers="CAUNZIP r14.1  (08/04/16) REXX    ".



Any supported CCS390

Cause determined to be due to syntax. When defining the ZIPPATH variable the leading '/' has to be included otherwise the relative position to the job's PWD  ( Print Working Directory ) is used and most likely no access is granted.


Be certain that your batch job has path's specified as absolute direct paths , and not assumed as they may likely have different resolutions of the path strings. Specifically for ZIPPATH variable.
