Incorrect Device Allocated When Using UNIT=AFF

(Doc ID 1552223.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 08, 2014

Applies to:

Sun StorageTek Storage Management Component (SMC) - Version 6.2 and later
Sun StorageTek Enterprise Library Software (ELS) - Version 7.0 and later
IBM z/OS on System z


Job does not allocate correctly because UNIT=AFF is not being honored.

A job is run that uses a UNIT=AFF reference for the output DD to the input DD.

Existing JCL uses UNIT=AFF for some jobs to use the same device for the input DD for the output DD.
