    PROBLEM:

    What could cause error messages 'BMC278031E UTILITY BUILDER API RC=1,  BMC278038E UUAPI REASON=UTDEF DD POINTS TO A BACK LEVEL OR INCORRECT DATASET'?


    SOLUTION:

    This error can occur after an upgrade of DASD Manager if the Trigger JCL was mistakenly not regenerated leaving the UTDEF DD still pointing to the previous release's dataset in error.

    The recommendation is to check the TRIGGER JCL's UTDEF DD and  confirm that it references the new release's XML datasets (hlq.XML) and -if need be- correct.

    The following is stated in the section for "  Setting up a BMCTRIG job
       
      Warning
    To avoid potential job errors, regenerate your BMCTRIG JCL before you run BMCTRIG jobs. Otherwise, you should review DD requirements for potential changes. The UTDEF DD must reference the XML data set by default instead of the CLIST.
