OUI gets USS shell message FSUM3057 when C89 can not allocate temp work files (Doc ID 730462.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 12, 2008

Applies to:

Oracle Universal Installer - Version: 10.2.0.2 to 10.2.0.3
IBM z/OS (OS/390)

Goal

During silent install of Oracle Client on z/OS, the OUI runInstaller log
shows Unix System Services shell message FSUM3057 :
   
  FSUM3057 The data definition name C8920 cannot be resolved.
  An allocation error occurred for <TEMPFILE> with return code 4, error code 970C hex,
  and information code 0000 hex.
   
which means :
   
  A pseudo-JCL dynamic allocation instruction that was processed by c89 failed.
  c89 did not recognize the return code, error code, and information code resulting
  from the dynamic allocation function.

The OUI log contains the following DFSMS messages, just before shell message FSUM3057 :

  INFO: IKJ56893I FILE C8920 NOT ALLOCATED+
  IGD17207I VOLUME SELECTION HAS FAILED - THERE ARE NO ACCESSIBLE
    VOLUMES FOR DATA SET SYS08198.T134618.RA000.ORA3.R0125197
  IGD17277I THERE ARE (0) CANDIDATE VOLUMES OF WHICH (0) ARE ENABLED OR QUIESCED
  IGD17290I THERE WERE 0 CANDIDATE STORAGE GROUPS OF WHICH THE FIRST 0
  WERE ELIGIBLE FOR VOLUME SELECTION.
  THE CANDIDATE STORAGE GROUPS WERE:VIO

Section "Interpreting Error Reason Codes from DYNALLOC" in the "z/OS MVS Programming:
Authorized Assembler Services Guide" says the "error code 970C" in shell message FSUM3057
during runInstaller is a system routine error meaning "Severe SMS VTOC service error"
and the SMS messages that follow "IKJ56893I FILE C8920 NOT ALLOCATED"  indicate
there are no (0)  CANDIDATE VOLUMES available or setup in the USS environment
for the C89 compiler to allocate temporary data sets;
