M204.1387  ALLOCATE failed; ddName​=​ddName​,​ DSN​=​dsname could not be located

An attempt to allocate an existing data set, data set name=dsname, failed because the specified DSname was not found in the catalog or the catalog could not be accessed.

(M204.1387 replaces M204.1070: ALLOCATE FAILED - reason with additional information regarding the failure of the ALLOCATE command. However, M204.1070 remains in use by Janus/TCPIP for a different purpose.)

Response: Correct the data set name, or ensure that the data set exists and is cataloged.
