Question:

Why am I receiving a PRF0879E "Not permitted to delete dataset" message while extracting data, when I was able to do do in my previous release?

Environment:
z/OS 1.11 and above.
Answer:

On the Client's "CA Report Facility product controls" screen in the System Profile, the "Dataset Protection?" indicator was enabled (Y) & the Node was set to "1":

1) SYSP.01  r19.0    ----------      TSO  System Profile ----------   12/29 08:50 

    COMMAND==>                                                   USER ID: HAYGR01  

                       CA Report Facility product controls                         

    Execution Controls...                                                          

      Signon Type:      C   Dataset Protection?    Y Node: 1   Online Printing? Y  

 

..this means that the 1st node of the extract dataset name must match the User ID, which it didn't. The USERID above is HAYGR01, however, the 1st node in the database below is TSDUMP:

2) XDSN.04  r19.0    -------------- EXTRACT DATASET --------------    12/29 09:03 

    COMMAND==>                                                    HAYGR01.T0902366 

        EXTRACT TYPE: CSV       QUERY USED FOR EXTRACT: HAYGR01.GLHQ1                  

    -------------------------------------------------------------------  SMS: N    

    Dataset ... 'TSDUMP.BIPRF.C0902366.I1128.EXTRACT(+1)'     Member ....         

.. This indicator was disabled in the prior release. To correct the problem, the Client disabled the indicator again:
