M204.0598  FREE ddName failed - reason

The FREE of the indicated data set failed due to the reason given in the message.

If reason is:

Specified DDNAME or DSNAME associated with an open dataset

Then this can be caused by any of the following:

  • The data set is a Model 204 file (or part of a multi-data set file) and, as a file or a member of a group, any of the following can apply:
    • The file is currently open by another user.
    • The file is a mandatory member of an APSY subsystem, and the subsystem is currently active, even if no one is currently using the APSY.
    • The file is currently open in this Online by another Model 204 Online as part of a scattered group.
    • The file has the FRCVOPT X'10' bit set to prevent discontinuities, and the file has been updated in this Online.
  • The data set is not a Model 204 file, and the data set is currently open for access — either read or write.

Response: Correct the condition that caused the command to fail, then reissue the command.
