INTRODUCTION:

A table load using CA Fast Load for DB2 for z/OS (PFL) abends with the following JES messages:

ABEND SYSTEM CODE S878: ERROR DURING GETMAIN SYS CODE = 878-10
IEW4000I FETCH FOR MODULE IDIXDCAP FROM DDNAME -LNKLST- FAILED BECAUSE INSUFFICIENT STORAGE WAS AVAILABLE.

The following PFL messages are also returned:

PFL0206E - FASTLOAD application did not complete successfully
PFL0207E - T_Space Task ECB: X'40878000'   Return Code: X'00000010'
PUT2101E - CSECT UTAGLIX2 Abended - X'0013E000' ESTAE Intercepted
PFL0212E - Data sets did not load successfully

What should be checked to make sure that no storage problem exists? What could be the reason for this abend?

INTSTRUCTIONS:

A mismatch of the REGION size could be possible reason for this abend.

Verify the REGION= specification on the JOB statement and/or PFL step.

The REGION= value on the JOB statement overrides the REGION= values on any EXEC statement in the job.

The REGION= value coded on an EXEC statement in the job is only used if no REGION= value is coded on the JOB statement.
