Question:

Why am I getting message DB00501E OPEN ERR 68(12) when I start up my CA APCDDS supplied MUF JCL in CA Datacom/AD?

Environment:
CA Datacom/ADCA APCDDS
Answer:

CA DATACOM/AD release 10.0 was not available when the current CA APCDDS release 1.1 was distributed; With the 10.0 and above version of CA DATACOM/AD, the MUF parameters were changed.  The MUF control cards that were supplied with CA APCDDS 1.1 release are no longer valid and can cause errors.

MUF startup options in DBDATIN1(DATACOM), and TKMUFS02(APCDDS) need to include:

MUF      ADMUF01,99,YES
ECHO    NO

Also, the RESTART option is not allowed with CA DATACOM/AD 10.0 or higher. Remove step 1 from the CATKMUFS PROC which will eliminate invoking this option.
