    I am trying to create a Web Service using zosConnect and all the time after the service is being created it disappear, I need to refresh a couple of time in order to have the service back and the same happened with "Create Directory", "Create Service" and "Create Operation" and at the end I am getting this message:

    Any help would be appreciate.

    Hi Isaac,

    Sorry for the trouble you are having. I'll reach out to the team at IBM.

    This has to be a problem with either the AVZMAPP file from the startup JCL.  (First file in the concatenation list as that is where the Directories would be stored).

    Or, a problem with the hlq.MMAP file that is associated with the Directory and is where the Server and Operations are stored.  

    Please check those files and make sure they have enough space and directory blocks.

    You can do a "SRCHFOR" in each of them and should be able to find the Directory, Service, and Operation.

    If all looks okay then you are going to have to open a Support Case.   Send in the Trace Browse from when you create one and they disappear.   That will help the Support team.  

    1. From the tracebrowse command line issue a D MSGNO T TCB "enter"
    2. Then to print out a block of the tracebrowse
         a. type a PP over the MSGNO column from the lines you want to copy

    from and a PP over the MSGNO column for where you want to copy to. 
    3. Please be sure to send several messages before the error or failing condition. This will write the tracebrowse to your ISPF list dataset.
    4. Issue the LIST command from the command line.
    5. Specify option 3 to keep the list dataset and allocate a new one.
    6. Download the list dataset and attach the file to this case.

    Jeff, thanks for the reply.

    We just began working with these last fall, added the MAPP and MFL files via studio, did not add anything to the STC JCL. 

    Last week we looked at the MAPP files (we had several)  and we attempted to consolidate by copying into one dataset to share for the two DVMs for dev (- as .AVZD) and the two DVMs for prod (- as .AVZP) - each environment to have its own.  We had several messages about not being able to find the datasets as if it was doing dynamic allocation.  When Isaac attempted to define services it would not keep the data entered in several situations, had to redo, was difficult to understand what had worked, what had not, why things "disappeared."

    Should the STC have both MAPP and MFL dsns in its JCL ideally / period?
