M204.2417  Empty RESTART stream assumed in first pass

This message is written when a permanent I/O error occurs while attempting to read the first record of the RESTART stream. Recovery assumes that the RESTART stream is empty. This is not an error condition if the RESTART data set was allocated but never used.

System manager response: Verify that the RESTART stream was correctly specified as follows:

  • If the DEFINE STREAM command was not specified, verify that the data set name (DSN) specified by the RESTART DD statement of the recovery run matches the DSN associated with the CHKPOINT DD statement of the previous run.
  • If the DEFINE STREAM command was specified, verify that the members specified are the same as those used during the previous run, and that the DD statements match.
  • Check the JES log in the previous run to make sure that the data set(s) was cataloged properly or if the actual physical device addresses need to be specified for the data set(s). Use a utility to verify the existence of the data set(s) on the specified physical device(s).

Operator response: Notify your system manager.
