subtask Type of subtask
acb Name of failing ACB
rcnumber Return code from the Open VTAM ACB routine
enumber Error code within ACB
An attempt by an initializing subtask to open a VTAM ACB failed.
The VP390 subtask terminates with a condition code 8.
Verify that the ACB name acb is correctly defined. If rcnumber = 8, then the subtask may be restarted using the INIT command. If rcnumber = 12, then there is a serious VTAM error which will not allow a re-issue of the ACB Open command; check the status of VTAM and recycle the VP390 job. If enumber = 88, then resource acb is already in use by another program. (Remember that the PPO subtask should not be used if NetView is running.) If enumber = 36, verify that acb does not have a password requirement or other RACF restriction. If enumber = 90, verify that the VTAMLST APPL entry for acb is coded correctly and the APPL is active. For descriptions of other error codes, see the section for the OPEN macroinstruction in the IBM manual VTAM Programming.
