A U0005 Abend from program SASSBK00 with OPT=RELOAD.
When running SASSBK00 to reload the database you can encounter a U0005 abend. This occurs when SASSBK00 attempts to delete and redefine the three database VSAM files (SASSIDS, SASSJOB, and SASSDS) and the files are not located on the volume specified in DBPARMS. In most cases the files have been moved by SMS to different volume.
We recommend and document that you add a STEP prior to the RELOAD step that executes IDCAMS to delete the three database files. The following is a sample IDCAMS delete step:
//stepname EXEC PGM=IDCAMS
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*
//SYSIN DD *
As always, please contact CA Technologies support for CA 7 if you have further questions.
