When we try to perform Open, Close, I/O Operations on a VSAM file, we encounter multiple issues.

We see a error message in the format

IDC3351I ** VSAM {OPEN|CLOSE|I/O} RETURN CODE IS return-code
{RPLFDBWD=nnnnnnnn}

Explanation:An error was encountered during virtual storage access method (VSAM) open, close, or action request processing, as indicated in the text of the message.

In the message text:

nnnnnnnnThe meaning of RPLFDBWD, the RPL Feedback Word.

Example:

IDC3351I ** VSAM I/O RETURN CODE IS 108 – RPLFDBWD = X’8408006C’

Here the error is due to

“The RECLEN specified was larger than the maximum allowed, equal to 0, or smaller than the sum of the length and the displacement of the key field of the base cluster or related alternate index (AIX). The RECLEN was not equal to the slot size specified for a relative record data set. ”

There is difference in LRECL of the datasets provided for copy in IDCAMS.
