Browse or edit of a table results in an ISPF abend:

* ISPF Subtask abend *

ENVIRON ENBLDUMP=ON is active

IEA995I SYMPTOM DUMP OUTPUT

 

SYSTEM COMPLETION CODE=04E REASON CODE=00C90101

Environment:
DB2 for z/OS and ISPF
Cause:

As indicated by the abend message there is a problem with this table that causes DB2 to abend

SYSTEM COMPLETION CODE=04E REASON CODE=00C90101

Because ISPF option  ENBLDUMP=ON is active the DB2 abend results in an ISPF subtask abend. 

 

Resolution:

Issuing command 'ENVIRON ENBLDUMP OFF' cancels the effect of the ON status.

 

Instead of the ISPF abend you will now see this error:

DSNT408I SQLCODE = -438, ERROR: APPLICATION RAISED ERROR WITH

DIAGNOSTIC TEXT: PTABDBS: PTLBDBC subtask has abended: S0C4 

 

Additional Information:

The default value for the ENBLDUMP parameter is ON.

You can also set ENBLDUMP OFF this way:

- Select ISPF option 0

- Select Environ (place cursor) then Environ settings.

- Remove the ‘/’ for ‘Enable a dump for a subtask abend’
