Issue:

An Abend U1000 in VTPM9803 at OFFSET=00000948 in Step DDRTVCAT UPDATE while running the Job / PROC DBCBUPDT as described in the HOLD ACTION of CA Disk PTF RO90201.

 

Environment:
z/OS
Cause:

That catalog database,DDRTVCAT,cannot run when the base is in use. 

Resolution:

The proc failed as the database was open and CA Vantage is probably the causer. 

So the solution is simple, stop CA Vantage, stop Ca Disk activity and run the DBCBUPDT. 

Please follow these steps: 

1) Stop CA Vantage 

2) Stop CA Disk activity 

3) Close the Disk DB FILES to verify all goes fine.  Run a DBUTLTY COMM OPTION=CLOSE,DBID=nnnnn for the CA DISK database 

4) Run the DBCBUPDT procedure 

5) Once the Database is updated, restart CA Disk activity and CA Vantage.

Additional Information:

The command F diskmuf,COMM STATUS shows which Datacom tasks are still attached for the Auto-Restore Manager.

Here an example:

 

DB01311I - COMM STATUS                              

DB01327I - MULTI-USER AVAILABLE, TASKS - ATTACHED-----6, AVAILABLE----44

DB01328I - TIME   I/O  JOBNAME R-UNIT TASK CMD-DBID-

DB01330I -             VANR142  97385    1 NOT ACTIVE

DB01330I -             VANR142  97386    2 NOT ACTIVE

DB01330I -             VANR142  97387    3 NOT ACTIVE

DB01330I -             VANR142  97388    4 NOT ACTIVE

DB01330I -             VANR142  97397    5 NOT ACTIVE

DB01330I -             VANR142  97398    6 NOT ACTIVE 

 

So, instead of stopping Vantage, the command F sams,ARM,SUSPEND also ends these Datacom tasks.

A subsequent F diskmuf,COMM STATUS should show:

DB01311I - COMM STATUS                                                  

DB01327I - MULTI-USER AVAILABLE, TASKS - ATTACHED-----0, AVAILABLE----50

 

Use F sams,ARM,RESUME  to reactivate ARM.
